The long-awaited new single from David Archuleta dropped Friday, and fans are giving his new sound rave reviews.

“Up All Night” is from David’s upcoming “Orion” EP, his first major release since 2013 and one that’s being dubbed as his “first truly adult album.”

Remember, David was just 16 when he auditioned for Season 7 of American Idol en route to a second-place finish.

And he was still a teenager when he released his first three albums.

In a Facebook chat with fans earlier this week, David, now 26, said “Up All Night” isn’t your typical up-all-night party song. It’s more about the thoughts that ran through his mind while he was up all night writing the song.

That said, “this one — ‘Up All Night’ — is one you can groove to,” David added. “Usually, my music isn’t something you can groove too. But this one you can.”

And fans apparently are, judging from their comments on Twitter. A sampling …

Lindsay‏ (@lillmissy): “@DavidArchie #upallnight OMG THIS SONG. I’M SHOOK.”

Bianca‏ (@missbianca): “I have @DavidArchie’s new song #UpAllNight stuck in my brain. I think it’s his best since Crush and deserves attention.”

Barb‏ (@EL_FOD): “Well, I’ve been #UpAllNight listening to this song, so must get some shut eye. Hoping this song gets the recognition @DavidArchie deserves.”

Eloy Camacho‏ (@eloyonair): “@DavidArchie’s new single #UpAllNight is like, really catchy!”

Deb‏ (@debz416): “@DavidArchie every time I listen to #UpAllNight I hear something new…it’s got more delicious layers than a #UnicornFrappuccino!”

Oh, and fans have also gotten the song on the iTunes charts. Twelve hours after its release, “Up All Night” was sitting at number 71 on the iTunes pop singles chart.

The “Orion” EP is set for release May 19. The best news of all for David’s fans is that it’s supposed to be the first in a series of EPs.

He’ll also be touring this summer, and polls are underway on his Facebook page so fans can make suggestions on where he should perform.

A June tour, with 11 dates in the western U.S., has already been announced.

If you haven’t already heard “Up All Night,” here it is.
