#MusicPH - Taking it to the Next level, NICOLE LAUREL ASENSIO Releases Single “SEE THROUGH” with Justin Bieber’s producer BLUE HAMILTON on March 19.

Award winning Filipina singer-songwriter and all around performer Nicole Laurel Asensio is set to release a brand new single entitled “See Through” under Warner Music Philippines on March 19.

Since last 2020 and to date, Nicole released 4 singles in the span of 6 short months, 4 cinematic music videos, a merchandise line and over 20 online concerts, fundraisers and hosting events. 

Her Christmas Single “See You This Christmas” found its place in hun- dreds of local and international playlists and gained a notable following. 

Nicole also released 20 on-line music videos under a YouTube series called “Quarantines. ” In television, she also appeared in adramatic series called Afterlife with noted film and TV stars Ms. Eula Valdez and Jett Pangan. 

Nicole is also a rarity in the industry being that she is fully self-managed and handles outsourcing all her suppliers, logistics and other production details. 

How did this new song 'See Through' started? 

It was on one of her Instagram posts that she saw a comment from @bassieblue (Mr. Blue Hamilton) that said “ Your voice is..... and “fire. ” Completely stunned, she decided to check his profile to see if it was really the world renowned producer’s account, and true enough, it was really him!

“Brandon Hamilton, professionally known as Blue is a Grammy nominated, multi-platinum American record producer and songwriter with production credits for Justin Bieber, Robin Thicke and co songwriter of Diane Warren.”

The friendship and conversations followed led to a collaboration. 

After submitting a handful of demo lyrics and melodies, Blue instantly decided on a track entitled “See Through.” After a few lyrical and structural adjustments, Blue had the first draft of the song recorded.

“Working with Nicole on “See Through” was fun because the process took us both to places we don’t typically spend a lot of time exploring, musically. I am a musician, but much of the music I make on a regular basis is digital. This song is as organic and raw as it gets with simple bass and guitars leading the way.", Blue Hamilton

Nicole was so humble as to allow me to propose some other ways to express herself melodically, stylistically, and lyrically.This song is much simpler and smaller in scale than some of her other work, but her huge vocals give it this weight and large scale. I had a great time throwing some Motown flavour onto her already classy and elegant style. I am looking forward to doing some more songs with Nicole and seeing what new things we come up with now that we’ve gotten to know each other through the process of making this first jam.

After the recording, mixing and mastering process by Blue’s team was done, Nicole quickly worked into pre-production for the music video. It was a first-time collab work with Filipino director Jason Tan whom she worked for anonline concert “Hinahanap hanap Kita Manila. ” 

The shoot was held at Nicole'sown home with a modestly sized crew, donning the creations of her friends Patricia Santos and Swim Lourdes. The video gives a glimpse into the character’s clandestine moments recovering from a failed relationship.

The chorus is sung with rawness, the words honest, cutting yet simple.

“You remain in every little thing In light and dark In love and pain.” She also echoes Blue’s sentiment that it will likely not be their last musical collaboration.

“See Through” will be out on Spotify and Apple Music on March 19, 2021 under Warner Music Philippines and the Music Video will be launched on Facebook live and her Youtube Channel (Nicole Asensio) on March 23, 2021.
