New Collaboration Music Rlease: In A World Of Never Ending by Beato

Date with Fate duo Wendell Quinto and I have formed a project band named Beato (pronounced as be’ya’to) and we have released a new collaboration music “In A World Of Never Ending”.

The previously unreleased track, a new wave 80’s inspired music, was written by Wendell way back with his former group and was rearranged and recorded at Nolit’s studio during the Date with Fate project. It was one of the songs that were originally planned to be on the Control album but was later on cut in the final production. While the earlier recorded version I did with the guitar parts were ‘overdriven-dirt’, the re-recorded parts I’ve done here have more subtle feel, focusing on the acoustic side and clean vibe. You can hear the latest version below.

Beato reintroduce the classic new wave to the kids of today as well as bring nostalgia to the people who grew up listening to those kind of stuffs. The genre of the group is not limited to the 80s old school though, as they’ve mixed it up with present influences of alternative, indie pop and electronica.

“In A World Of Never Ending” will also be part of Indiepinoy’s typhoon Haiyan compilation album Bangon Pilipinas on its later volumes so do watch out for this :). Proceeds of these albums will be donated to the victims.

Listen to the song.
