It's December, which means rising star grentperez is back with his annual Christmas drop! The Filipino-Australian singer-songwriter just released his delicate new song "Christmas Starts Tonight."
grentperez explains, "Christmas, the time for presents, laughter, gatherings and greetings, and is a time that I love very dearly. 'Christmas Starts Tonight' is about the excitement that comes with the season, the feeling of wonder and cheer with every passing day that leads to Christmas night. In a way, you can make Christmas Day every day if you really want to."
"Christmas Starts Tonight" arrives on the heels of the release of his highly anticipated EP ‘When We Were Younger’, a seven-song collection centered around the concept of nostalgia. Inspired by his parents' record collection that soundtracked his childhood (Dionne Warwick, The Carpenters, The Bee Gees + more), the intuitive and unexpected sonic detours throughout ‘When We Were Younger’ are what make grentperez’s breezy, lithe pop songs feel full of life.
Ben&Ben was recently named the most streamed artist in the Philippines in 2023 and the band just dropped a new song to add to their catalog of hit records. “Autumn” is inspired by long distance relationships after Paolo Benjamin, the band’s lead vocalist and guitarist, felt lonely without his girlfriend during their North American tour in Canada.
“A few months later, in early 2023, brother Miguel Benjamin completed the lyrics, also adding a bridge about being in different seasons, which really completed the message of the song,” the folk-pop collective adds. “It speaks about themes of loneliness, yearning, and ultimately, hoping against hope that a new season will come.”
The award-winning band explains in a collective statement, “Autumn is a song where we showcase how we’ve evolved and matured as a band. Writing-wise, we felt that the perspective was a more realistic and mature take on the subject. Arrangement and production-wise, we discovered a lot of new ways to express sounds that achieve the emotion we were going for.”

Tabudlo shared his full sentiments on the sonic offering in a lengthy Instagram caption: “3rd Time’s A Charm. My most personal, vulnerable, and honest album. 17 tracks and 17 stories that made me the person I am today. A mix of the big hits and new tracks for you to listen. This one cuts deep into my heart and it’s definitely my best work yet.
Creating this album was probably the most heart warming and emotional ive ever been making music. You would normally hear me compose words about typical heartbreak and cliche fairytale love stories, and always changed it up a bit for every listener to really feel the mass effect of pop love songs and the concept of it. This time, with this album… these stories are about me, what i went through, and what i’m going through that maybe similar to you.
A lot of family, friends, and love, was with me during the creative process, and i’m so stoked for everyone to hear what makes this album so special. To all the people who have supported me through out this roller-coaster ride of a career, here’s the 3rd album. this is “3rd Time’s A Charm”. 🩸 out November 17th. 💿”
