Filipino singer-songwriter/producer Zack Tabudlo transports the joy of long, lasting real love on his new single “Habang Buhay”—out today on all streaming platforms via Island Records Philippines and MCA Music Inc.
Expressing security in the promises of unconditional romance, Zack Tabudlo allows himself to bask in the golden feeling of being swept away by love, while looking forward to more affectionate years with that special someone.
“Habang Buhay has its own life with the happiness itself of the song alone,” says Zack Tabudlo in a statement. “I haven’t written any song with such a happy and positive meaning before, so this is definitely something different.”
Written, produced, mixed, and mastered by Tabudlo himself, the shiny, retro-pop tune is inspired by a lot of old school OPM classics such as VST & Company, and other ‘80s songbook stalwarts such as The Police and Fra Lippo Lippi.
Taking into the account the nostalgic tendencies of his influences, the young music prodigy makes the song current with its explicit nod to more melodic, guitar-pop stylings that have come to define his hits—from the chart-topping “Nangangamba” to the streaming smash “Binibini.”
A music video will be released soon to complement the song’s effervescent vibe, but Tabudlo is mum about its entire concept. The alt-pop hitmaker assures, “There will be a music video for it but I’d love to keep the people behind it a secret for now. I love to give the fans a big surprise.”
