After finding success with her cover of “Di Na Muli” by Itchyworms for the romantic-drama film Sid & Aya: Not A Love Story starring Dingdong Dantes and Anne Curtis, Janine Teñoso would lend her voice behind various movie soundtracks like “241” for 100 Tula Para Kay Stella starring JC Santos and Bela Padilla, “Ang Awit Natin” for Para Sa Brokenhearted, “Ulan” for the Nadine Lustre-led Ulan, and her latest single, “Tag-Araw”, for the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) box-office hit Miracle in Cell No. 7 featuring Aga Muhlach and Xia Vigor.
While staying true to her moniker as the OST Princess by performing song covers, little do people know that the singer-songwriter wrote and released her own composition back in 2017 titled “Fall.” After three years, she is set to release another original composition in the form of the single, “Umibig Muli.”
The idea of the song came from Janine’s friend, co-writer Pauline Lauron, who invited her to complete one of her unfinished songs. The songwriting process took almost a year until it reached completion, with Janine explaining that she mostly stayed in her room reading romantic novels for a month to find inspiration to finish the song. With aid coming from her producer and arranger, Jay Durias from the band South Border, “Umibig Muli” came into fruition.
The song is accompanied by a mellow acoustic tune that showcases Janine’s sweet and soothing voice. While following a melancholic theme of pain and heartache, “Umibig Muli” brings about the hope that listeners can love again.
“At kahit ngayon ang puso ko ay nasawi, balang araw ako ay matututo ring umibig muli.” part of the chorus plays.
Janine will hold a single launch for the song this Thursday, January 9, at Jess & Pat’s, an artsy cafe in the heart of Maginhawa, Quezon City. Joining her in her opening milestone of the year will be The Juans, John Roa, Raphiel Shannon, Sofia Romualdez, and Bea Lorenzo.
“Umibig Muli” will be released in all digital streaming platforms on January 10, Friday.
