Truly, SSO

Warner Music Singapore and the Singapore Symphony Orchestra are proud to release Truly, SSO, a 14-track digital album that reimagines all-time National Day classics with a fresh, modern spin. The release also marks the first time that the two music giants are joining forces to celebrate Singapore’s birthday.

In this album of Singapore’s National Day songs, Truly, SSO draws on Cultural Medallion winner Kelly Tang’s excellent arrangements and conductors Joshua Tan and Darrell Ang’s inspiring interpretations. The compilation contains studio recordings as well as past live performances of all-time classics such as “Stand Up For Singapore”, “Rasa Sayang”, “Di Tanjong Katong”, “Chan Mali Chan”, and many more. The Singapore Symphony Choruses provided the vocals to the well-loved songs, including a premiere performance and recording of “Peribahasa”, a medley of Malay folk songs.

Adding a more contemporary touch, Warner Music Singapore artist iNCH lent her vocal chops for the moving rendition of the beautiful track, “Vanda Miss Joaquim”. Other Singaporean musicians include jazz pianist Jeremy Monteiro and drummer Tama Goh.

Released worldwide on August 2, 2019 on all digital platforms, Truly, SSO is a heartfelt gift to all Singaporeans at home and overseas, in honor of the bicentennial celebrations and in conjunction of Singapore’s 54th birthday. The recording was made possible by supporting partner, the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music Recording Studio.
