With an official release of 26 July, Filipina singer Red Tan’s latest single, ‘Don’t You Dare’, was recorded with Luke Adams, at River Studios in Southampton.
The lyrical content of the track, as well as the strengthening of her self-esteem, was helped by writing in the studio’s unfamiliar environment, allowing Red Tan’s powerful vocals to shine with confidence. These were further enhanced by the synth instrumentals, which had a sci-fi vibe to them.
Red Tan has been singing professionally for five years, during which time she suffered the loss of her husband. She has nonetheless gone from strength to strength in her career, winning two medals at the World Championships of Performing Arts in Los Angeles, and receiving the opportunity to perform at London’s O2 Arena, as a result of having been a finalist in the UKs Open Mic competition.
Red Tan has been working on her debut EP, set for release later this year, as well as her album, which should come out in 2020. Her vocal style and empowering nature of her music has seen her being compared to both Dua Lipa and Blackpink.
