Hale releases new single and music “Magkaibang Mundo” featuring Angel Locsin
Hale is back with their fourth single, “Magkaibang Mundo”, from their fourth studio album “Kundiman” under PolyEast Records and now it has set its aim on ruling the music charts one more time. Their previous singles which include: “Bahay Kubo”, “Kalesa,” and “Harinawa” helped the band chart-topped again since they started with EMI Philippines back in 2005 with the chart-topping hit single “The Day You Said Goodnight”, which undeniably made Hale a household name virtually overnight.
The video, directed by Nani Naguit, features a cameo role done by Ms. Angel Locsin. As the band’s frontman and the single’s songwriter Champ Lui Pio shares, “For this video, it was really a team effort. The team brainstormed and really helped each other build the whole video from story line, to cinematography, color grading, editing – everything. What makes this video really special is the effort poured into it. You can really see and feel the passion the people put behind it.”
Champ continues, “Angel is truly an angel from heaven. To be honest, we were working on a limited budget for this video. She was gracious enough to appear on the video and do it for free. She was so involved and patient with us despite having to deal with obstacles during the shoot. Hands down to her! It was an experience that we will never forget.”
The song, “Magkaibang Mundo” is about “recollecting past memories and rekindling precious moments of a past love. Wondering what life would have been if fate had gone in a different path. The person struggles to move on and cannot deny the passion he has for the other,” Champ says. “In the end, love prevails, hope will rise. But it might just be a little too late.”
The best part of the song, lyrically and vocally, is found in the bridge as Champ starts to sing the lines through his melodic voice: “Walang balakid / Walang makakapigil / Ang iyong pangalan / Sigaw ng damdamin / Hindi alam kung saan tutungo / Kung wala ka”.
Champ is nothing but thankful for Hale’s latest feat. He says, “For now, I’m just grateful for the experience shooting the video. I’m really, really happy with it. And I’m excited to share it to everyone.”
“Magkaibang Mundo” music video is slated for release on MYX premiere this Sunday July 11 at 8am. Meanwhile, the album KUNDIMAN is still available in CDs.
