LOURDES will be bringing the house down as she is set to launch her debut album, aptly titled Ruin The Party, this Saturday, November 30, 2019 – 8:00 PM at Draft Punk Brewers & Skewers.
LOURDES, formerly known as Lourdes Maglinte, started writing songs when she was only 14 years old. At 23, she is now releasing her debut album – Ruin The Party, LOURDES’ unapologetic celebration of life, love, and loss, with 11 tracks (including an acoustic bonus track) all written and composed by the artist herself.
Each song, carefully crafted one after the other within the album’s 11-month production stage, is a testament to LOURDES’ formidable songwriting, and a telling of her personal journey as she has gone and grown through life.
22 Tango Records CEO Cattski Espina is the Music Producer of this album. “The previous albums I’ve produced had a folk quality into them. In fact, LOURDES’ debut single released in 2016 had a pop-folk singer-songwriter sound. But LOURDES has grown and evolved as an artist, and I discovered that she really has a natural soul, neo-soul, r&b, hip-hop swag. I’ve always wanted to explore crafting that sound— being a child of the 90s — and I loved TLC, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Sade, Macy Gray, etc. I thought of using these influences to create something from.”
Recorded, mixed, and mastered at Room Eleven Recording Studio, the album boasts of RnB, hip hop, and neo-soul vibes. It will be released under 22 Tango Records, and will be available on all digital streaming platforms on the day of the launch.
LOURDES’ prior releases include Empty Sheets and 2 Cents, both enjoying regular airplay on local radio. The latter made it to Ruin The Party, as it is consistent with the album’s themes of “saying what you want to say and meaning it,” according to LOURDES.
Ruin The Party will also feature performances by fellow homegrown acts Alice Who, Sepia Times, and Wonggoys. LOURDES CDs, T-shirts, and other merchandise will also be available for sale on that day. Door fee is at Php200.00.
