Toni Gonzaga comes back to the recording scene with a fresh offering for her fans—the first album magazine under Star Records.
ABS-CBN's multi-media star said the the personal touch she has put on her fifth recording album would make her followers reconnect with her.
She also pointed out during its press launch last week, "Na-realize din namin sa panahon ngayon, bibihira talaga ang mga tao na bumibili ng album. Kasi, napakadali na ng access sa Internet, sa YouTube, ida-download na lang nila ang kanta, okay na. Whereas, kapag naglabas ka ng isang album na mas personal, mas maa-appreciate nila ang bawat page o pahina na ilalagay mo roon.
"Kaya naging album magazine kasi sila, 'yong mga sumusuporta sa amin, mahilig silang tumingin ng mga article about us. So, kung ginawa mong gano'n 'yong album, mas maganda para sa kanila tingnan ang album."
The 26-year-old TV and movie personality admitted that it took a while before she came out with another music album. Her last album, titled Love Duets, was a collaboration with former screen partner Sam Milby. (CLICK HERE to read related article)
She told the media, "Ngayon lang tayo nabigyan ng pagkakataon na magkaroon ng mas mahaba-habang panahon at oras para sa paggawa ng album. Kasi last year, nag-focus tayo sa mga programa katulad ng Pinoy Big Brother. Naging busy ako sa hosting at mga TV shows so, hindi nagkaroon ng panahon. Siyempre, kapag ganitong bagong album at may magandang concept, dapat pinag-iisipan mabuti kaya medyo natagalan lang."
All Me contains two discs. The first one has 13 recorded tracks including Toni's collaboration with Malaysian music artist Hazami while the second disc is a VCD of her five music videos, all of which are directed by her boyfriend of four years Paul Soriano.
Through the album All Me, Star Records also aims to introduce Pinoy music to other Asian countries by distributing it to Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and Hongkong.
Toni stated, "'Yon naman ang gusto nating tahakin lahat, ang mai-promote natin ang sariling atin, ang ating sariling musika. Sana, kahit papaano, sa sarili nating way, maipakita nating mga Pinoy. Kaya naman talaga natin at marami nang nakapagpatunay niyan, at isa lang tayo sa sumusubok."
The multi-talented celebrity will also have the chance to promote her album during her two-week U.S. tour starting August 2.
Toni's All Me album magazine is now available in record bars. Its songs may also be downloaded via www.starrecords.ph.
