TJ Monterde launches new single “Tulad Mo”

Acoustic balladeer and songwriter TJ Monterde is set to release his newest single “Tulad Mo” this Saturday August 15, 2015. The music video will also premier Saturday and will be released exclusively on on Poly East Records’ official Youtube channel.

Two years after the release of his last studio album, TJ is now ready and more inspired to release his new song “Tulad Mo.”

I’ve always loved acoustic and I will always love acoustic music. But this time, it’s quite different compared to my previous acoustic songs. I tried reinventing to do more up-beat, pop-ish kind of feel. You know, the same music you sing when you’re happy” said the 25-year old acoustic singer.

Sought for some details about the song, TJ revealed that the melody was already made last year but the lyrics was completed later on when he finally met his inspiration. He added, while he always loved writing songs and the whole creative process about it, this one’s a bit more special because of her girlfriend, KZ Tandingan.

During the Press Con last August 13, GigsManila asked him about what’s going on in his mind or what’s the state of his heart when he created the song. He shared that it’s all “KILIG”. He even confessed (with laughter) that males do experience “kilig.”

“Kinilig ako. Haha. Real Talk. Parang ang sarap lang kasi sa pakiramdam at mainlove dun sa song. P.S. Kinilikig din kaming mga lalaki. Hahahaha” – he said

Asked about plans of entering showbiz as an actor or joining a TV show, he said if it has something to do with songwriting he is willing but if it’s just singing he has second thoughts about it because he really considers himself more of a songwriter than a singer. But one thing’s for sure, he misses TV hosting because that’s where he started.

“Tulad Mo” music video will be exclusively available on PolyEast Records YouTube Channel starting August 15, Saturday. The song is also available for download at, Deezer, Guvera, iTunes and Amazon.
