(MANILA, 23 June 2015) – Spotify Sessions today unveils its first exclusive recording in the Philippines featuring the biggest comeback act of 2015, Hale

The alternative rock band first hit the mainstream charts with the launch of their self-titled debut album Hale back in 2005, a year that saw them garnering nominations for Band of the Year and Best New OPM Artist. After a five-year hiatus, the band launched their comeback this year with their single ‘See You’, which was released as an exclusive pre-stream available on Spotify earlier this year. 

In the first installment of Spotify Sessions in the Philippines, Hale performs ‘See You’ along with their brand new hits such as ‘One Of These Days,’ ‘You Or Nothing,’ and ‘Saint Or Sinner’. They also record their own rendition of ‘Lost Stars’ from the hit musical film Begin Again, which also marks the first time the band is releasing a cover track.

The band is looking forward to explore new ways to engage their fans as they make their comeback. Frontman Champ Lui-Pio shares, “It’s an honor to be the first OPM band to be featured in Spotify Sessions. We believe this is a great way for us to share our music not just with our fans in the Philippines, but the rest of the world.”

“We are thrilled to launch the first-ever Spotify Sessions in the Philippines featuring Hale. Hale’s comeback via an exclusive pre-stream on Spotify has been received well by fans and we can’t wait to share more exciting content from them,” says Chee Meng Tan, Director of Label Relations (APAC), Spotify. “This is our way of supporting the OPM industry and we look forward to feature more homegrown talent from our biggest market in the region.”

Hale joins the ranks of other artists who have been featured in Spotify Sessions in Asia, which include Malaysia’s breakthrough artist Yuna and four-time Grammy nominated country music singer-songwriter Hunter Hayes.

Spotify Sessions are intimate, exclusive performances by today’s most exciting artists, from up-and-coming local talent to international superstars. Recorded and mixed to the highest professional standards, these tracks are available for free on Spotify, offering artists the perfect platform to showcase their music to a global audience.
