Former American Idol star David Archuleta has a new song called “Beast,” and it came just in time for spooky season. On the cool new track, Archuleta sings about his dark side, comparing it to a monster inside him.

Archuleta hyped up the song on social media before its release on Thursday. Get ready to have it on repeat as Halloween gets closer and we all unleash our inner beasts.

David Archuleta Releases New Song ‘Beast’

“I know there’s a beast inside / That I have to hide / But it won’t leave me alone,” Archuleta sings on the track. “Clawing through my skin at night / Overtakes my mind / And it just won’t let me go.”

Archuleta even references the full moon in the song’s lyrics, making us think of werewolves. He warns the person he’s singing to that he’ll “tear your heart out if you stay with me,” finishing the song by announcing, “Stay away, I’ll hurt you ’cause I’m dangerous.”

The song has a great pop sound that will have you dancing in place as you listen. The 30-year-old was clearly excited about the new track when he previewed it on social media. He sang along to the song with a smile on his face, making it hard to imagine him having the dark side he sings about.



Archuleta Is on a Roll with the Music Releases

“Beast” is far from the first song Archuleta has released this year. He’s also shared tracks like “Losin’ Sleep,” “Movin’,” and “Be That for You.” Although the singer didn’t put the songs out with the intention of releasing a new album, he has considered an EP.

“I was just kind of releasing a song at a time as I wrote them. That way I felt like they were more fresh. But maybe I can,” he told PopCulture. “I was talking to my manager — I’m like, ‘Hey, maybe I can add a couple of songs and then put an EP out’ because I still have a couple more and I’m like, ‘Oh, I’m running out of time this year to release them.’ I’m like, ‘Well, maybe I can just place them all together, so people have something for our 2021.'”

Archuleta also told the site that he’s been taking choreography lessons to get better at dancing, which he showed off in the music video for “Movin’.” Maybe we’ll see him on Dancing with the Stars one of these days.
