A1 releases new album, performs in Manila this February

Couples, lovebirds, and hopeless romantics are assured of the latest, world-class love songs and a major live performance from a hit-making act come the month of February. 
Make way for boyband A1 as they release a new album entitled “Waiting For Daylight,” just a couple of weeks before they perform at the Smart Araneta Coliseum with the members of Blue and the frontman of 98 Degrees, Jeff Timmons. 
MCA Music announced February 6 as release date of the group’s new album which contains 15 tracks, including unreleased acoustic versions of their biggest hits: “Like A Rose,” “Caught In the Middle,” and “Everytime.” Carrie single is the title track which boasts elements constituting the relieving feeling of seeing daylight after a stormy night. 
On February 25, the triple treat concert dubbed "The Greatest Hits Tour: Blue, Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees and a1 - Live in Manila 2012" and made possible by Wilbros Live, takes place at the Big Dome, 8 pm, on what is the 26th anniversary of EDSA Revolution. The same night 26 years ago, love was in the air as dictatorship finally left the Philippines and democracy was restored. This time, the modern classics of the three boyband acts are expected to fill up the venue in a night of good music, well-orchestrated showmanship and glamour looks. 

A1 stated in a recent interview with a Manila reporter, “We will do our best to do every big hit! We are doing this for the fans and want to give them what they want to see! If there are any suggestions from the fans ahead of the concert then they can always give them to us on our official website ( or our facebook ( and twitter pages (www.twitter.coma1official). We can't wait!”
Jeff Timmons, his band behind the hits “”I Do,” “My Everything,” “Invisible Man,” among others, likewise revealed his plan to release new recordings soon. “I am working on new music," he said. "I'd love to work with contemporaries like Bruno Mars and Ne-Yo, but also legends like Teddy Riley, R Kelly, Babyface, Brian McKnight, Mariah Carey, and Christina.”
Asked about his recollection of his 98 Degrees mates, he shared, “I like all the guys, but Justin is the one I'm closest to. We share a mutual deep love for music. I got to know a lot about Justin and what he stands for, superb human being.”
The English pop vocal group Blue is set to deliver their hits like “All Rise”, “Too Close”, “If You Come Back”, “Fly By”, “One Love”, and I’m Yours”.
