It’s been a long two years, but Nadine Lustre is back with new music! In collaboration with Wild Entertainment, Nadine has released a new song titled “Overgrown.” The track, which serves as an anthem as the Filipino megastar is approaching her thirties, is appropriately titled as it reflects on her new lifestyle. Nadine has been living a more low-key life recently away from the spotlight in Siargao.
On “Overgrown,” Nadine’s sense of brand new being and soul searching is represented metaphorically as she experiments with new sonics throughout the track. On the track, you can hear elements of beach-inspired, drill, and jersey club sounds. Check out the song below!
The director of Philippines' widely talked about films, Birdshot and Dead Kids, Mikhail Red has his next project lined up. The techno-horror film, Deleter borders the thriller genre with the script created by younger brother Nikolas Red. Nadine Lustre is set to star in the lead role with Louise delos Reyes and Mccoy Deleon also joining the cast. If you're a fan of his previous films, this may be your next favorite.
According to Variety, "the story involves an online content moderator who deletes a suicide video made by her co-worker. But the otherwise desensitized woman cannot escape from either her own troubled past or from a mysterious vengeful presence." Content moderation is apparently a hub for social media moderation due to "good English-speaking skills and low-cost labor." With that, moderators sometimes can't unsee what they've seen and they carry that experience with them which can lead to trauma.
Mikhail tells the magazine, "this genre film attempts to unlock the dark secrets and consequences of their world, especially in a world where the truth is filtered and distortion is prevalent." Production of the film starts in August and is expected to go through September with the hope of premiering Deleter at key film festivals at the end of the year.

Nadine is learning how to flow with life with no fear. She is one of the stars for the various covers of Mega Magazine's 30th anniversary issue. Her issue explores the island life she's been living in Siargao, her new mindset, and new found freedom. Check out a snippet of Nadine's feature here!
Moving to Siargao during the pandemic was a huge move for Nadine. The change of pace to island life was a manifestation in the making. Her life coach reminded Nadine of a talk they had about where she saw herself in a year. Nadine wrote down, "my answer was somewhere close to the beach and the mountains the ocean and the mountains." Although she loves the city, Nadine is drawn to the beach and mountains. After Typhoon Odette, she made the travel back to Siargao to help those affected. Nadine conducted her own relief efforts to help clean up a town, build solar stations, and gather supplies for the locals. She has grown to not only embrace the island but also the way of life.
With a busy schedule as an actor and artist, life moved fast."When I moved to Siargao, that’s the really the time when I got to pause my fast life and just enjoy myself. It’s really different. It’s weird, you really pick up the energy of the place. I noticed that when Im in Siargao, I was really slowing myself down and I was just taking my time. I loved it—I got to savor my life even more.” Nadine needed to hit that restart button and center herself back to where she feels most herself. We can't wait to see what she does next in her fresh new perspective.
