The song is about a past love affair and the longing that remains after it has ended.
Juan Karlos finally breaks his silence with the release of his new single, “Boston,” on Friday, July 30. The stripped-down folk-rock track revisits a past romance and portrays the longing that lingers after it ends, posing the question “What if?”.
Juan Karlos recorded the song alone in his home studio, without the help of a band. This does not mean that he will be leaving his band, hence, just a simple, solo, project of his. Additional sax and flute parts were given by Dix Lucero, while mixing and mastering were handled by Noel De Brackinghe.
On an interview, the singer-songwriter talks about the song and the process that he went through to come up with it, saying: “I’ve always wanted a simple treatment with a touch of complexity,” Juan Karlos said. “‘Boston’ works in that vein, and it captures my personal vision as a musician.” And that’s what we got. A straight forward and simple song. But yet, impactful enough to struck its way through our hearts. After all, who would say they didn’t look back, at least once, to a past lover and said, “what if?”.
A lot of his fans admires him not only for his amazing voice and good looks, but his visible passion and dedication for his craft, and it all transcribe to each of his songs.
A music video featuring Juan Karlos playing in a moving pickup truck down EDSA preceded the song’s release.
