“Ever since I took the very first steps in my career, I cherished all the lessons and experiences I’ve gained through all those years, the ups and downs, the highlights and the difficult moments. These helped me hone my craft and led me to doors of opportunities. Every recognition that goes my way, favorable or critical comments on my work challenge me to do better because I owe it to my audience that I utilize my full potential,” says Christian with a smile.

“It’s the first time that we want to try and attempt to do more outside the country. Yes, I’m very proud of this album,” says Christian, smiling.

The album consists of eight songs which is a good mix of slow and upbeat ballads. The first single “All That’s Left” offers Christian’s new, bolder sound, and further proves that he is more than just a balladeer.

While taping for “The Kitchen Musical”, Christian never stopped to get in touch with some of the region’s movers in the music industry until he met Tat Tong, composer of the anthemic “All That’s Left”.

Tat’s other masterpieces-original songs in “Outbound” include “What Can I Do” and his masterful arrangement on Christian’s cover of George Michael’s “Faith”, which is very special for Christian because it was used in his first big solo number in “The Kitchen Musical”.

Aside from Christian’s collaboration with Tat, “Outbound” gathers its noteworthy works with Grammy-nominated multi-platinum instrumentalist Jim Brickman for “Never Far Away”, the K-Pop R&B trio One Way for “Wrong Number”, Indonesian songwriter Satrio for the hit song “I’m Already King”, and with Avex Japan’s amazing Baby M for the lovely duet “Sakura”.

Christian music videos always feature familiar and beautiful female celebrities: from Anne Curtis, Georgina Wilson, Solenn Heusaff, and Angel Locsin in (“Beautiful Girl”) to Cristine Reyes in (“I Remember The Girl”) to Paula Taylor in (“Tell Me Your Name”) to Carmen Soo in (“Afraid For Love To Fade”) to Angelica Panganiban in (“Nakaraang Pasko”) to Sarah Geronimo in (“Please Be Careful With My Heart”).

In “All That’s Left”, it features CosPlay Queen Alodia Gosiengfiao. When asked what’s like working with her, Christian says, “Alodia’s beautiful, she’s talented, she stayed up with us [from] 8 PM to 8 AM. We danced all night long until 3 AM. It was fun.

And while it’s apparent that “Outbound” has drawn him out of his comfort zone, Christian admits that it does not mean he will stop being a balladeer.

As a performer, Christian believes he’s improved, but he’s not reached his peak. “Honestly, I do feel that I’m at my best so far. I just hope I’m not at my best.”

He adds, “As I continue this journey, I have reached another turn on the road ahead. This is the right time to pursue new paths and directions. And there is no better way to begin this new and exciting phase than to share my latest work with you. With your support and a personal sense of renewed energy and devotion, I’m ready to face the challenge of the future.”

Outbound” is out now in all major record stores nationwide under Universal Records.
