Let James Reid Bring You a Sonic Journey on the Life and Death of Relationships in ‘lovescene:’

MANILA, Philippines—Bridging a five-year gap since his last full album release, Careless Music’s founder and president and one of the country’s most notable musicians, James Reid, drops the highly anticipated sophomore record, “lovescene:”

Five years since the release of “Palm Dreams”, Reid returns with a ten-track album produced both locally and internationally. Starting off strong with the release of its lead single “u & i”, a track centered on his longing for privacy, “lovescene:” is an exploration of the cycle of life and death that exists within romantic relationships.

The album boasts of internationally renowned producers such as The Stereotypes featuring international artists such as Woosung from The Rose, and Destiny Rogers.

Prior to his ventures as founder and president of Careless Music, Reid was and continues to be a widely popular singer and actor in the Philippine film and television industry, banking on over a decade of experience under his belt. He has been in multiple award-winning films and television shows which turned him into a household name in Philippine entertainment.

Ever since he joined show business almost 12 years ago, his relationships have been at the center of local and eventually global media’s interest. This fascination with his love life has created a lot of misconceptions with who Reid is when it comes to his intimate relationships. And now for the first time in his career, he is choosing to end all false speculations by facing the hot topic head on by turning his sentiments on the topic of love into an album.  

Through “lovescene:”, for the first time, Reid directly addresses his complicated love life, the attention it gets in public as he tries to keep it private. He expresses a deeper, more vulnerable, and romantic side to himself than what he usually reveals to the public.

Stepping away from his life in show business to focus on his musical craft has become evident through his work on “lovescene:”. The essence of the album is embodied in its soulfully produced tracks accompanied by his raw and sincere lyrics that take the listener through the highs and lows of intimacy and romance. A sonic journey on the life and death cycle of romantic relationships shown through James’ experiences.
