Pambansang Bae Alden Richards is happy to count more years with GMA Records as he renewed his recording contract last Friday, January 5.
Present in the contract signing were GMA Network Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Felipe S. Yalong, GMA Artist Center Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi S. Lara and GMA Records Managing Director Rene Salta.
The multi-platinum recording artist is excited for his upcoming album, which he said will have a millennial sound, including his most favorite praise songs. Alden is thankful that the label has been helpful and attentive with what he plans on doing about his newest album.
“GMA Records has been continuously researching and doing a lot of brainstorming kung ano yung mga project na ibibigay sa’kin, which I appreciate, dahil like what I’ve said before, hindi naman talaga ako kumakanta. And with their help, slowly, nahanap ko na yung fulfilment sa singing. So I’m happy that I’m still with GMA Records, it’s my 3rd year and I’m looking forward to more,” he said.
Meanwhile, Yalong has noted that despite being in the digital age, Alden remains to sell out in physical sales, “We are very happy, especially GMA Records, kasi pumirma muli sa’tin ng kontrata si Alden. The last albums that he released, lahat ‘yan platinum kaya masaya kami na kasama pa rin natin siya sa GMA Records, and hopefully magkaroon ulit tayo ng concert this year.”
The plans for his music career is already up and running as Salta discloses the upcoming activities for the Pambansang Bae under GMA Records. “Ngayon, limited edition ang magiging album ni Alden and it will probably be a bundle sa upcoming concert niya na ipo-produce ng GMA Records. Kumpleto na ang album, but the recording is still in the process and it will contain 5 songs and syempre kasama yung praise songs na si Alden mismo ang pumili,” he reveals.
Surely, the New Year has welcomed Alden with positivity and another successful year is in view as he begins to roll up his sleeves for his upcoming shows and album.
