“All the songs are about love in general, different types, different stages. It’s my way of expressing how I felt when I was going through these stages.” says Solenn Heussaff, the Filipino-French Platinum recording artist. “Universal Records gave me a list of songs that would suit me and we decided on a few pegs on how I wanted it to be and we worked from there.”

There are seven original tracks, three of which are in Filipino, and one cover song ‘Never Be The Same’ by Christopher Cross. During the presscon awhile ago, Solenn being born in 1985, didn’t know about this song by Christopher Cross and only heard it first when the album was in the initial process. She liked it because she wanted the album to be relaxing, an easy listening experience. “This album just makes me feel complete.”

“I love singing because its like painting, its a way to express myself, but what makes singing different is that it gives the listener the freedom to interpret it their own way and have that inimitable feeling of connection with the song.” Solenn said she sings Tagalog better than speak it and her favorite track is ‘Pangako.’ She said the songs included are more suitable to her voice range; some of her music influence came from Sade and Norah Jones.

‘Solenn’ is released under Universal Records and now available on CD in all record stores nationwide and on DIGITAL formats (iTunes, Spinnr, Deezer and Amazon).
