Listen To ‘Rise,’ A New Song By Asian and American Artists, From Inigo Pascual to Vince Nantes
The single is about “prevailing over today’s tides and facing a new world together”
The COVID-19 pandemic has inspired a lot of art from various creatives—in the past few months, we’ve seen Taylor Swift’s folklore, a new single called “Heal” by 14 Southeast Asian musicians, and the release of plays and musicals online, from Ang Huling El Bimbo to Hamilton.
“Rise,” a new song by Asian and American artists, from Inigo Pascual to Vince Nantes, is one such piece of art that has been inspired by the trials and tribulations brought about by the pandemic.
The artists involved include Grammy Award-winning R&B artist Eric Bellinger, Filipino pop stars Inigo Pascual and Sam Concepcion, Manila-based producer Moophs, Malaysian singer-songwriter Zee Avi, and BTS’ “Black Swan” composer Vince Nantes.
“Doing a project this big and this important is definitely a dream come true for me,” says Sam Concepcion. “I think with the artists that we have from different parts of the world, and the unifying message it has, this song could be heard everywhere across the globe.”
The song is produced by Tarsier Records.
