DAN Ombao appeals for a loved one to stay in the aftermath of a lost love in his latest release “Muling Maramdaman,” produced under Star Music.
The “Idol Philippines” finalist took inspiration in writing the song from his long-distance relationship with his then-girlfriend who was living in Japan.
“We’ve been separated from our loved ones for a lot of times, and sometimes, that means losing ourselves too,” he explained on how he can relate to the love ballad.
But beyond its painful message — of bringing back the joys of what used to be even if it means settling for what little love remains — is a deeper meaning that makes the track dear to Dan.
“This song is special to me because through this I hope to give comfort to those who are far away from their loved ones,” the singer-songwriter added.
Dan composed the words and music of “Muling Maramdaman,” which was arranged and mixed by Gabriel Tagadtad and produced by ABS-CBN Music’s creative director Jonathan Manalo.
Dan first joined “The Voice Philippines” in 2014 prior to being a finalist in the launching season of “Idol Philippines” last year. Known for being a captivating performer with a guitar, he impressed the judges and viewers with his laid-back rendition of The Club’s “Nobela” for his audition on “Idol Philippines.”
