Rico Blanco’s brand new single, “Amats,” will be simultaneously available on on iTunes worldwide Tuesday, June 12, in time for Philippine Independence Day. “Amats” is the carrier single of Rico Blanco’s forthcoming album under Warner Music Philippines.
An eerily compelling song of infatuation that’s borderline stalker-ish, “Amats” assaults you from the get-go with a barrage of Ati-atihan drums and the beeps and screeches of analog synths. Blanco reveals, “Amats” was originally written for a band, major chords, pop rock—the kind of song you’d expect from me, melodic, sweet…then I wondered, what if I make it dark, talagangamats? It becomes more dangerous… [to make] you feel on edge, uncomfortable. I wanted it to be in your face, like a stalker you want to get rid of.”
Yet another excellent stroke from this musical genius, “Amats” is poised to join Blanco’s collection of masterpieces that have captured our hearts through the years. As aFilipino rock icon highly regarded for his ingenuity and dedication to his craft, it’s only fitting that Blanco’s latest endeavor deserves no less than a worldwide release to satisfy fans across the globe.
