Less than a month after Janno Gibbs signed a contract with Star Music, Lani Misalucha made her way back to ABS-CBN with a recording contact under Star Music.
According to the Asia’s Nightingale, her new music would be different from that of those that she has released in the past as Star Music aims to bring her forthcoming all-original “global pop” sounding album to an international audience.
“Kung naaalala niyo ‘yung last album ko, The Nightingale Returns, collection po ‘yun ng mga best loved OPM classics, ano? This time naman, gagawin naman po namin lahat ng songs in English. Kasi lahat po ‘yung last ko ay puro in Tagalog. So this time naman, all in English. Pero siyempre po ang gagawa rin po ang ating mga local songwriters, composers. This time lang po meron kaming bagong i-ooffer dahil mas bago, mas current, mas young,” Lani said.
Meanwhile, Star Music executive Jonathan Manalo revealed that several exciting projects are coming Lani’s way in 2019 as she is set to mark her golden year. Apparently, her 50th birthday celebration would include singles, an album, and a major solo concert.
“Siyempre magsisimula ‘yung promotions kung saan siya nakabase - sa Las Vegas. Then sa LA kung ano ang pwedeng maging partner namin dun. Actually, marami naman kaming kinakausap na partners lalo na sa music. Dahil lumiliit nang lumiliit ang mundo natin, talagang pa-global ng pa-global na rin talaga ‘yung reach nang Filipino artists. And siyempre ‘yung isang pioneers natin na talagang naging international ay ating Nightingale. Why not i-maximize pa natin ‘yung pwede niyang gawin sa international stage? ‘Yung music video dun namin isho-shoot, isasama namin sa set list sa Vegas show niya ‘yung mga original songs niyang gagawin,” Jonathan added.
With Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez' transfer to the Kapamilya network having been confirmed recently, Lani expressed her excitement to work with her fellow OPM icons as well including Janno Gibbs, Ogie Alcasid, and Jaya.
“Oo naman. Sa tagal naming hindi nakapagtrabaho - ‘yung as in lahat kami. Of course, I’m looking forward na there’s going to be one avenue for us to be together. So I don’t know if that’s going to happen anytime soon, but who knows? Janno, Jaya, Ogie, Lani, Regine,” she stated.
