MANILA, Philippines – Fashion designer Kate Torralba (photo) ventures into the recording industry as she releases her first full-length studio album titled Long Overdue. The CD contains 11 original tracks that Kate composed herself, including its carrier single Pictures. All songs were produced by Kate in collaboration with Malek Lopez.
Other tracks of Long Overdue include Monkey Song (Nokiesque), Northfleet, Video, Anywhere With You, Drunk On Your Love, Kung Mali Ako, Seminar, Get Me, Under My Stairs and Pictures (Cinematic Version). The album also features the works of noted producers and arrangers such as Todd Hunter, Mikey Amistoso, Jazz Nicolas, Diego Mapa, Dennis Chan and Mike Villegas.
Kate was part of the pioneering batch of the annual Elements Songwriting Camp and she describes music as her very first love being a classically-trained musician even before she entered the world of fashion.
Kate’s CD will be launched in her native Cebu via a long-overdue grand homecoming on Nov. 8 at SM Cebu Northwing (6 p.m.). Part of the proceeds of her CD sales will be donated to the earthquake victims in Cebu.
