Then came all the recounts of his life and career in the past 10 years in the industry and I suddenly realized.I miss Christian Bautista!And I mean it.This The way You Look at Me has so much of Christian's heart and soul in it (I am not referring to the singing) that my admiration to the man has skyrocketed again.
And I recall this encounter I had with Christian a few months back when he had a rare audience with us bloggers in time for the release of his latest album CHRISTIAN BAUTISTA Outbound.
And so I am re-posting this and I think I will be playing this Christian Bautista CD the whole day tomorrow and for the days to come. :)
OUTBOUND : new and bolder sound from Asian Sensation Christian Bautista
Christian’s music videos always feature familiar and beautiful female celebrities: from Anne Curtis, Georgina Wilson, Solenn Heusaff and Angel Locsin(in Beautiful Girl) to Cristine Reyes (in I Remember The Girl) to Paula Taylor (in Tell Me Your Name) to Carmen Soo (in Afraid for Love to Fade) to Angelica Panganiban (in Nakaraang Pasko) to Sarah Geronimo (in Please Be Careful With My Heart). All That’s Left, it features CosPlay Queen Alodia Gosiengfiao.
And while it’s apparent that Outbound has drawn him out of his comfort zone, Christian admits that it does not mean he will stop being a balladeer.
“For this album talaga kasi medyo half-half. Half experimental, half-medyo ballad pa rin naman siya. [And] Easy listening pa rin naman. Pero definitely I’m not going to drop the ballads,” he says, smiling. “Kasi siyempre, nagsimula ako sa ballads and du’n naman talaga ako kumportable. So hindi ko p’wedeng iwanan talaga ‘yun.”
He adds, “ As I continue this journey, I have reached another turn on the road ahead. This is the right time to pursue new paths and directions. And there is no better way to begin this new and exciting phase than to share my latest work with you. With your support and a personal sense of renewed energy and devotion, I am ready to face the challenge of the future.”
Outbound is out now in all major record bars nationwide under UNIVERSAL RECORDS.
