David Archuleta has returned with brand new music.

The 28-year-old singer, who was the runner-up on the seventh season of “American Idol”, just released his latest single “Paralyzed”.

The anthemic new song will be featured on Archuleta’s seventh album scheduled to be released next year.

“[It’s] a bit of a venting song,” David told Idolator. “I get frustrated watching myself hesitate so much, and not let go of things from the past that I know I should. A lot of those past things are fears, anger, resentment, and I see how they all form excuses in my mind of why I can’t move forward. I watch as missed opportunities fly by and I just do nothing, because I freeze. It gets me so frustrated!”

He added, “This song is the battle with those paralyzing thoughts and I intend to be the victor.”

In 2008, Archuleta made it to the finale of “American Idol”, but lost to David Cook.
