British-Norwegian group A1 is expected to churn out their familiar tunes at their Manila concert on the evening of February 25, 2012. But one thing their Pinoy fans should look forward to is their new, exciting rendition of their smash hit “Like A Rose,” which arguably is their biggest song in the ears of fans this side of the globe.
Member Ben Adams who wrote “Like A Rose” is thrilled to announce their performance of the said version. “We have just updated it for a brand new version for 2012, which was amazingly fun to do! Very excited for you all to hear it!” He recalled, “I wrote it when I was 16 years old on my old upright piano at my parents house. I haven’t told anyone this really as most people assume it’s a love song, but it was actually originally written for my mom!”
A1 started making a big splash when their first single, “Be the First to Believe,” entered the UK charts at #6 in early 1999. They had a huge amount of success worldwide with two #1s and eighty top 10 hits. Some of their other hits are “Take On Me”, “Ready or Not / Everytime”, “Same Old Brand New You”, “Caught in the Middle” and “Make It Good”.
Grab a copy of the greatest hits of A1, available in music stores nationwide, for only Php430, only from Ivory Music & Video, the exclusive licensee of Sony Music in the Philippines.

Letter Days Story is now riding high on the success of their latest single “Save Me”. Gaining a steady stream of airplay in tastemaker stations like 89.9 Magic, RX 93.1, and Jam 88.3, “Save Me” captured the attention of the hip mainstream audience that has always been craving for new and original OPM band music. Letter Day Story attracted a new wave of followers, particularly in their social media streams, venting out their clamour to hear more songs from LDS. Hence, the EP “Breakaway” is now released. ‘Breakaway’ consists of six tracks – including ‘Save Me’ – ‘Smile’, ‘Breakaway’, Ikaw at Ako’, Hinahanap’, and ‘The Hero Within’ – the last track having been featured on AXN Channel where LDS are ambassadors.
The release of Letter Day Story’s digital single “Save Me” last August was a pivotal point in their career as recording artists. They’ve had their share of sophomore jitters inspite of their current stature. They’ve been together as a band for over ten years, won the grand prize in a prestigious band competition, released their debut EP “Sulat Araw Kwento” in 2009; released their debut album “Sama-Sama” in 2010; and are signed and managed by Sony Music Philippines — yet, LDS opted to test the waters once again with “Save Me”. The remarkable response by their loyal fans and new set of “likers” also compelled them to release an official music video for “Save Me”, which is now airing on MYX Philippines and other music video shows.
The EP “Breakaway” is out now in digital formats, available for mobile and online downloading at major online sites like iTunes (click HERE). CD formats are also available at leading record stores.
