In between TV shows, movie projects, and product endorsements, Solenn Heussaff still makes time for her other love: music.
This February, the 29-year-old singer-actress returns to the recording scene with second music album titled SOS.
Taken from Solenn’s nickname, SOS is a follow up to her self-titled debut album, which reached Platinum status for both physical and digital platforms.
Like her first album, according to Solenn, SOS will still be more like dance album, “pero may techno beat din sa background.”
She also adds, “Mas maraming originals sa second.
“‘Yong first kasi dalawang original lang.
“Sa second may seven originals and three remakes.
“‘Tapos may isang original na exclusive sa iTunes lang, wala sa album, ‘yong soundtrack ng Mumbai Love.”
SOS is a 10-track album featuring Solenn’s collaboration with other local music artists including popular rock icon Ely Buendia.
Miguel Escueta, on the other hand, worked with Solenn for the bonus track “Until the Sunrise,” which is only available on iTunes.
NEEDS MORE IMPROVEMENT. Although she already produced two music albums, Solenn admits that she still doesn’t think of herself as a professional singer.
For her part, Solenn believes that she has become more comfortable while doing the second album.
She recalls, “Kasi noon kailangan akong uminom ng isang glass of wine.
“Every time I sing sobrang kinakabahan ako.
“‘Tapos nagiging dry ang throat ko before going on stage.
“Ngayon, minsan ganun pa rin pero mas kumportable ako, mas sure na ako sa mga notes.”
If given enough time, Solenn says she will get professional voice training and Tagalog lessons to further improve her singing skills.
“Kapag mas maraming time this year, gusto kong mag-training.
“There’s still a lot of room for improvements pa,” she ends.
