The multi-hyphenate has collaborated with a South Korean entertainment company to release “Overgrown,” her first music release in two years.
“I still want to do music,” Nadine Lustre told Vogue Philippines earlier this year, about her evolution as an artist. The multi-hyphenate fulfills this with the release of her new single, “Overgrown,” a single that pays homage to her twenties.
“Overgrown” is Lustre’s medium of processing the experiences of her twenties and being at peace with herself. The single, her first release in two years, is timed before Lustre turns 30 in October this year and is reflective of her new life in Siargao, the buzzy yet still largely serene island off Tacloban frequented by surfers.
The song features a new sound for Lustre, whose music background includes being part of a girl group, Pop Girls, before she became an established actress, and who has since released pop singles and a visual album collaboration with independent record label Careless Music.
Apart from the single being Lustre’s first music release in two years, this is also her first collaboration with WILD Entertainment, a 360-degree entertainment company from South Korea that also works with artists like Sorn and Seungyeon (formerly of the girl group CLC), and Yubin (formerly of the group Wonder Girls). Lustre co-wrote the song with Singaporean singer-songwriter Linying, and the single was produced by Josh Wei, who has previously worked with 2NE1’s CL.
A series of visualizers and content will be released by Lustre leading up to the release. “Overgrown” can now be pre-saved and will be available on all digital music streaming platforms starting June 23.
