Gentle Bones releases first single with Warner Music Asia, ‘The Right Words’

An EP is set to accompany the single later this year

Singer-songwriter Gentle Bones has released his first single with Warner Music Asia, titled ‘The Right Words’.

Gentle Bones, real name Joel Tan, shared a new single to mark his debut with Warner Music Asia titled ‘The Right Words’ on February 10. That single, an upbeat ditty that begins with the bright notes of an acoustic guitar, is the first music from an upcoming four-track EP set to be released in the third quarter of 2023.

Listen to ‘The Right Words’ below.


Tan announced his signing to the label on February 1, in a deal that will see him working together with the label to expand his fanbase to other Asian countries outside of Singapore. In a statement shared at the time, Tan said of the signing; “We’re putting together releases that encompass a strong regional vision and I am thrilled to bring this to fruition in the next couple of years with them.”

He previously announced last year in July that the Gentle Bones project will be retired in Singapore. Following a performance at a charity concert at the Sands Theatre in Marina Bay Sands on July 22 alongside fellow Singaporean artists JJ LinCharlie LimLinying, and Tay Kewei, Tan revealed that the show was his “last ever concert in Singapore”.

Though he that he “will no longer be performing or participating in any activities locally” by the end of 2022, Tan left the door open for the Gentle Bones project to continue outside of the country, adding, “There’ll still be more music to be made.”

Gentle Bones released his self-titled debut album in 2021, eight years after he released his debut single ‘Until We Die’. Becoming Universal Music’s first-ever Singaporean signee in 2015, Gentle Bones would go on to release a joint album with Singaporean producer MYRNE called ‘B4NGER PROJECT’ in 2018.

He was Singapore’s third most-streamed local artist on Spotify after JJ Lin and Sezairi in Spotify’s 2022 wrapped, marking the third consecutive year he has found himself on the list.
