American Idol season 7 alum David Archuleta has let out a snippet of his cover of “Somewhere Only We Know.” The track will be one of the songs included in his upcoming album BEGIN.
The original version of “Somewhere Only We Know” was released by English alt rock band Keane. Another American Idol alum, Blake Lewis, also performed this song during his run at the Top 24. More recently, US musical TV series Glee also made use of the song with Darren Criss doing lead vocals along with the Warblers.
