In 2010, Hale released their last single after years of ruling the Pinoy airwaves. Fast forward to 2015, Spotify, the world’s most popular music streaming service, brings to OPM fans the biggest comeback of 2015 with Hale’s brand new single, See You. The single, from the band’s upcoming fifth album, is available exclusively on Spotify from January 27 to February 2, 2015.
A quick run down memory lane confirms that 2010 has indeed been a while. On the year that alternative rock band Hale last released a single, the late Steve Jobs has just unveiled Apple’s first revolutionary device, the iPad, and Prince William melted girls’ hearts all over the world when he proposed to his then-girlfriend Kate Middleton. Who can also forget that it was the same year the whole Philippines rejoiced and celebrated with Venus Raj as she was awarded 5th place in Miss Universe?
The last five years make Hale’s recent comeback more exciting than ever. The long wait is over as the band, led by frontman Champ Lui-Pio unveil their brand new sound on Spotify.
“We are incredibly excited to be welcoming Hale back to the OPM scene after their five-year hiatus,” shares Sunita Kaur, Managing Director (Asia), Spotify. “We are thrilled to bring Hale’s brand new sound as we continue to support the OPM industry and delight Pinoy music fans.”
“On our last album, there weren’t any streaming services available. With this comeback we want to have a mindset of a new band, starting over with a different sound. We’re excited to try new things specially launching with a platform like Spotify.” shares Champ Lui-Pio.
