It was an afternoon of music, fun and entertainment last time at Centerstage as GMA Records officially launched the ALBUM of Dennis Trillo and Tom Rodriguez. Fresh from the success of My Husband’s Lover, GMA Records thrills the entire nation with a very promising album from Tom and Dennis.
Tom shared that the album concept is based on their respective characters’ emotion. Most of the tunes share a classic ballad arrangement, but they are infectious enough and dripping with sugary ode to love to engage even the straightest of men. “Photograph” signals a change in direction of the lyrical themes. Its sparkling guitar and piano combo belies the ballad’s allusion to a lost love filtered convincingly through Tom’s beautifully restrained vocals
When asked about their feelings on recording the album, Dennisshared: “Napakarefreshing na makakanta ng mga ballad lalo na kung nasanay ka sa mga rock. Maganda rin minsan na maixplore mo yung mga side ng music. Pampatagal ng stress at pamparelax. At maeenjoy ng mga tao yung music mo.”
Also Tom talks about his transformation as a singer. “Before kase mga comment sa kin lagi kong nginingiti yung mga kanta so I think natuto na ko na bigyan ng emotions yung mga songs na kinakanta ko. Naging training na din siguro yung background ko from theater.”
Tom and Dennis performed 4 songs that is included in their album. One is the popular theme song from the series popularized by Ms. Kuh Ledesma
Many were disappointed that the much anticipated kiss on the finale of My Husband’s Lover weren’t aired on primetime. Good news is that Tom and Dennis shares where you can watch it!
Dennis: Nanghinayang kami na hindi sya pinalabas tapos there’s a plan na ipalabas sya sa concert pero last minute sabi hindi na daw. When asked about how long is the kiss, Tom answered “Mga around 5 seconds.”
The Kiss will be seen on DVD release of My Husband’s Lover which is now available on your favorite record bars.
The My Husband’s Lover tandem confronted stereotypes to open up the overlooked idea that love is universal in whatever form it takes. And it manifests even on their new record, TomDen.
Within three days of being made available on digital format, the album already reached the #1 spot on iTunes PH Top Albums chart! The album’s carrier single “Forever” is currently enjoying favorable airplay in pop radio stations in Metro Manila and key provincial cities nationwide.
