“The Clash” alumnus Anthony Rosaldo tells a story about two individuals who found love at the wrong time in his newest single under GMA Music titled “Pwedeng Tayo.”
The song was written by Vehnee Saturno, Davey Langit, Jonathan Manalo, and Edwin Marollano during the first ever FILSCAP Master Camp.
The Kapuso singer revealed that choosing this song for his next single was an easy one, a step towards reinventing himself as an artist, “Very skeptic ako noong naghahanap ng next song for my single. I really wanted to reinvent my music, give my listeners a new one to fall in love with. And then came the day for my song listening (listening session). Ito yung mamimili na ako ng song. Funny kasi I will be presented only one lang pala. And the reason is, Sir Kedy Sanchez found the perfect one na. Nagustuhan ko agad ang “Pwedeng Tayo” when I heard it. Fresh music, easy listening and very relatable story.”
He recorded the song in his own home during quarantine. The other people who were part of the recording such as the musical arranger, the backup vocalists, and the guitarists, as well as the vocal processing were also done in their respective homes. Only the final mixing of the song was done in the studio. Anthony described this experience as “fun and challenging at the same time.”
“Iba kasi ang nagre-record ka under the supervision of a professional. Sure ka na maganda ang kalalabasan. Tapos this time, it was all up to me. Pero siyempre, I tried to do my best. Perfectionist kasi ako sa sarili kong work so I really made sure na maganda yung quality ng ipinasa kong material,” he shared.
“Pwedeng Tayo,” a song that most of the people who’ve gone through heartbreaks in their life can relate to, mirrors the reality of love and life.
“Hindi lahat nakakahanap agad ng perfect match for them. Either you fall for the wrong person or it wasn’t really your time yet. Sometimes it takes a lot of tries, a lot of heartbreaks to find “The One” pero the good thing is, you still will try kaya kapit lang,“ Anthony said.
Recently, the GMA Artist Center talent was conferred as Most Promising Male Recording Artist of the Year for his debut single “Larawan Mo” under GMA Music at the 51st Box Office Entertainment Awards. The recognition was given by the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation Inc.
“Pwedeng Tayo” will be available for downloading and streaming beginning July 9 on Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube Music and other digital stores worldwide.
