KC Concepcion is now a multi-hyphenate. She started out as a commercial model, and later tried her hand at theater and television acting. Now, she's giving recording a shot, via her still untitled debut album under Sony BMG. This album will be released in May 2008.
KC's participated in the whole creative process of making the album. She's proud of what the album will become.
"Maganda po 'yong feel ng album kasi gusto naming mangyari 'yong music niya—‘pag bumiyabiyahe kayo or long road trip—‘yon ang nilalagay n'yo sa CD player n'yo. Para siyang easy listening na very relaxed, very masarap pakinggan. Hindi siya bumibirit, hindi siya masyadong nag-i-impose sa listener," said KC.
So far, she has recorded about one fourth of the whole album. It will offer some originals and revivals, like a Top 40 popularized by Barbadian singer Rihanna.
"Gumawa kami ng bagong version ng ‘Umbrella' na very ethereal, pinatong-patungan namin ng vocals ko. Umiba 'yong tunog ng ‘Umbrella' dito. Ballad pa rin po siya, parang naging very mystical siya."
There are also some hit songs from the '80s and early '90s. "We also have ‘Just Can't Get Enough,' ‘80s, na ang tumugtog po do'n Pinikpikan. And we have ballads like ‘It Must Have Been Love' at marami pang iba mga Tagalog songs na surprise. One is from my favorite artist Joey Ayala, na favorite song ko from his collection."
Her mom Sharon Cuneta has listened to some of the raw tracks that KC has recorded so far. "Nasa iPod po niya [‘yong songs], pero hindi pa kasi tapos. Every time naririnig namin, meron kaming gustong idagdag or bawasan. Marami pang mangyayaring mixing, so hindi pa final 'yong tracks."
What remains sure is that what KC has done in her yet-to-be-released album has pleased her mom. Says KC: "Excited siya at gusto niya 'yong mga kanta."
