Nicole Laurel Asensio releases new single
IT HAS been a while since Nicole Laurel Asensio got back in the recording cycle. For this upcoming single, “Bawal,” she collaborated with guitarist/ multi-instrumentalist Gabe Dandan. “This is one of the simplest lyrical expressions I have published, nothing poetic here, just a sentiment revolving around the quintessential question: “Bakit masarap kapag bawal?,” Ms. Asensio said about the song. “It was one of those instances na halos sabay lumabas yung lyrics and melody, and halos tapos na yung song form in the first session. I was led into the song by the chord choices. The song is a simple, slow, soulful blend of sultriness and the melancholy of desiring something you can’t have.” The recorded track features Otep Concepcion (drums), Rommel Dela Cruz (bass), Nikko Rivera (keyboard), Ted Amper (cello), Lester Sorilla (trumpet,) Gabe Dandan (producer, guitar, percussions, backup vocals), and Mike Luis (vocal arranger, backup vocals). Distributed by Warner Music Philippines, “Bawal” is available on all digital platforms.

GRAMMY Award-winning singer Meghan Trainor has released her fourth full-length album, Takin’ It Back, via Epic Records and Sony Music Entertainment. This time around, she made a conscious decision to hark back to the signature sound she introduced on her 2015 full-length debut, TITLE, and bring it forward to today. “I tried to do the doo-wop feel I had at the beginning of my career, but the 2022 version of it. This is from the new Meghan who is a wife and mom with a baby. This is from me right now. I decided to give the people what they want, but with my spices added to it. I wanted to make my Title 2.0,” Ms. Trainor said in a statement. She worked closely with Gian Stone, Federico Vindver, Sean Douglas, and her brothers Ryan and Justin Trainor out of her own home studio. The first single released from the album is “Bad For Me,” featuring Teddy Swims. Her second release is the anthemic “Don’t I Make It Look Easy.” Accompanying the album’s release is a video for her new single, “Made You Look.” Takin’ It Back is available on all digital music platforms worldwide.
