David Archuleta fans have been getting lots of exciting news lately.

David will be releasing a new single, “Up All Night”,” on April 21.

Coming on the heels of the single will be an EP, “Orion,” due out May 19.

And coming on the heels of “Orion” will be the kickoff of David’s summer tour.

He just announced about a dozen dates in the west and southwest, beginning with a June 1 show in Red Bluff, Ca.

But don’t worry, fans who live elsewhere. On Facebook, David’s team is polling fans to find out where else they’d like to see him play, in the U.S. and beyond.

“Orion” will mark David’s first major release since 2013, when he embarked on a two-year mission trip to Chile.

The press release announcing “Orion” says it will mark the first in a series of EPs and “may be his first truly adult album.”

In addition to “Up All Night,” it will feature “Numb,” a single David released in November. I’ve embedded the music video for that song below.

David, now 26, was runner-up to David Cook on Season 7 of American Idol.
