Singer-songwriter, Adie Garcia, continues to roll as he released his newest single, “Tahanan,” last Dec. 8.
Following the release of Adie’s certified hit-singles such as Luha, Paraluman, Dungaw, and Sawa Na, which generated millions of streams and support from all over the world, the release of Tahanan is bound to strike a chord as it speaks about finding comfort in someone.
“Tahanan is a song about lovers who finally found their comfort places with each other,” says Adie.
When asked about the inspiration for this track, Adie reveals, “It’s about my family that will always be my home in all ways no matter what.” He adds that realizing the feeling of comfort found within the emotions entrenched in being attached to someone prompted his drive to craft this piece — such sublime cognizance springs from when he watched Alessandra De Rossi’s My Amanda (2021), starring De Rossi herself and Piolo Pascual.
“I wrote the chorus a couple of months ago when I got inspired by the movie. I then continued to finish the song the day I felt real affection that I didn’t expect to happen. It’s like one snap, and I finished the whole track quickly by just imagining things with a person,” he shares.
Other creative minds behind this track include Franz Sacro and Hazel Pascua, whom Garcia had collaborated with in his previously released tracks. For this latest single, Tahanan, Sacro and Pascua pitched in the development and execution of ideas for this track. Sacro structured all the instruments in Tahanan, while Pascua mixed and mastered the whole track.
“Tahanan” marks Adie’s last release for the year as he concludes such momentous stint with major music nominations — Breakthrough Artist and Favorite Male Artist in the 34th Awit Awards; Wish Breakthrough Artist of the Year, and Wishclusive Contemporary Folk Performance of the Year for his single Paraluman in the 7th Wish Music Awards.
Adie shares, if there’s one message he hopes to impart to his listeners through his latest single, “Tahanan,” it is for them to “Feel something. That’s it.”
Published under O/C Records, “Tahanan” is now out on all leading digital music platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube. (Denise Simone/contributor)
