EXCLUSIVE: David Archuleta Doesn’t Watch ‘Jersey Shore’, Says New Album Is Finished

David Archuleta admitted on “The Ralphie Radio Show” that he doesn’t watch MTV’s hit reality show “Jersey Shore” – matter of fact – he even needed a synopsis.

“What is it about, exactly?” Archuleta innocently asked – completely unaware of stars like “DJ Pauly D” or “The Situation.” Fear not though, as David had heard of Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi before.

“I was at ‘Good Day New York’ and everyone signs a wall and there was one that said ‘Snooki’ and I’m like, ‘Oh, who’s ‘Snoo-key’?’” he recalled. Archie later mentioned that he heard of the show before, but didn’t really know much else about the show or its cast.

The Idol-alum also said he’d be more intimated singing in front of Simon Cowell than Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, who is rumored to be a judge on the upcoming season of “American Idol.”

Thankfully for Archuelta fans, the singer knows this much: his sophomore LP, The Other Side of Down, is finished, and will be released October 5.

“I definitely had a lot more say (in the creative process of the album)… I just wanted this album to be me,” said Archuleta. “The theme of this album is ‘introducing David Archuleta’ to everyone.”

The process in opening up and speaking more about himself began with the writing of his memoir, Chords of Strength.

“At first, I was like, ‘Why the heck should I be writing a book? I’m only 19 years old,’” he said. “I can’t help but be myself. So, I wanted to do the same with my music.”

Archuleta said the new album is currently in the mastering process – and revealed that there is also a title track to the LP – one of his favorite’s on the piece, thus the name.
