David Archuleta displays a fresh look of him, wearing casual red T-shirt in the cover art for his self-titled debut album, which is confirmed to hit the market on November 11 under the courtesy of Jive Records. Previously, Archuleta has released "Crush" as the first single from his upcoming set and the song has peaked at number two in Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart.
Furthermore, in an attempt to support his song as well as his forthcoming album, Archuleta has released a music video for the lead single. Filmed in Coweta County, Georgia during a break from "American Idols Live Summer Tour", the runner up of 2008 "American Idol" is seen playing piano on a dock and strumming a guitar while he keeps shooting sideways glances at a pretty blonde girl.
Meanwhile, a week after Archuleta's album release date, his friendly rivalry on the reality show, David Cook, is set to drop his debut album on November 18. In the meantime, a spokesperson from Cook's label recording company, 19 Entertainment, says that the winner of this year's reality TV talent show has released a Chris Cornell-penned single, "Light On", from his upcoming album.
