Singer Diego Gutierrez has released a new song entitled “Sino Na Tayo.”
This new song marks Diego’s first time recording an all-Tagalog song. “It feels great to be able to record and release a song using a language that best expresses how my heart feels” the young singer confesses. “As the access to music becomes more global, I feel like I’ll really be able to connect deeper with local listeners while maintaining a broader, international appeal.”
When asked to explain more, the singer, who is seen regularly in “ASAP Natin ‘To” every Sunday, further clarifies: “Sino Na Tayo” is really the first time we attempted to write an all-Tagalog song. Just looking back to the music I grew up with, hearing songs in Tagalog just really felt more authentic and true to my roots. I wanted to tap into Filipino ‘hugot’ sentimentality, then hopefully connect it to a wider audience with an international pop feel and arrangement.”
But what is the song about? “The whole premise behind the track is about this realization between you and the person you love, and how time has evidently changed that connection. It’s about struggling to figure things out, where things went wrong, dropping your guard and realizing that you’re about to lose someone you want to grow old with. That entire narrative in an all-Tagalog song over a nostalgic yet futuristic production hopefully makes feel the emotional rollercoaster I wanted to convey in the song,” explains Diego.
Incidentally, a music video of Diego’s song has just been completed. Shot in the beautiful scenic Caliraya and directed by Kashka Gaddi, Diego is teamed up with Anji Salvacion from “Pinoy Big Brother.” This is certainly another thing to watch out for.
“Sino Na Tayo” was produced and arranged by super-producer Mark J. Feist. The song’s lyrics were written by Diego Gutierrez and Wilde Quimson while the music was composed by Mark J. Feist under the Hitmakers Entertainment label. The song was released last June 24.
