Filipino pop star and actress Nadine Lustre has released more details on her upcoming record ‘Wildest Dreams’, which comes accompanied by a visual album.
The initial announcement for the visual album was made via a teaser on October 20, offering fans a taste of an unreleased song, followed by a trailer four days later.
The visual album is scheduled to arrive on October 31 at 9pm. The record itself is expected to arrive earlier through streaming platforms on the same day. Watch the dramatic trailer below:
‘Wildest Dreams’ will be Lustre’s first full-length studio effort, following her 2016 self-titled debut EP. It will span 12 tracks and tell the story of her personal experiences with “empowerment and self-love”. Six of these songs will be featured in the visual album.
The album was partially written during the government-imposed quarantines after the COVID-19 outbreak. In an interview with CNN Philippines, Lustre explains more about the album’s songwriting process during this period.
“For me to just comfort myself and to tune in, I was just writing almost every day and get in touch with my emotions— kind of unearth issues that I haven’t dealt with before, that I kind of wanted to push down because I didn’t have the time to handle it or to face them,” she says. “So, so many things happened during the lockdown. I can say I grew into a better person because of that.”
The album’s delicate alt-R&B title track was released on Friday, October 16. The track marks her departure from her previously pop-heavy tunes. The rest of the album, however, will feature pop tracks and some indigenous Filipino instrumentation, according to Rappler.
The track was co-written by Lustre, Careless Music co-founder KINGwAw (aka Bret Jackson) and Massiah (aka Haissam Morton), and was produced by KINGwAw, Isagani Palabyab and Kahlil Ho Atienza. James Reid assisted with arrangement, recording and mixing.
