Fresh from the recent release of the “Liquid Courage” music video, Paolo Sandejas is ready to drop something new this 2023.

His new song is “BORED? (hope you’re happy),” from the upcoming “Bloom” EP.

The song asks: what would you do if you were getting unwanted messages from the person who used to toy with your feelings? What if you really adored that person but they only sees you as an option? And just texting or calling you when they’re bored? That’s the core message of Sandejas’ latest offering, which is produced by Fern.

Ahead of this single’s release, Sandejas has already been performing it in his recent gigs around the metro.

According to the singer-songwriter, the song is about self-love and the realization that you should be putting yourself first.

He said, “You deserve better than someone who only calls you when they’re bored.”

The BTS V-approved OPM artist adds, “As someone who has been known for writing sad breakup songs, I wanted to write something more empowering to uplift people who might feel that they were not valued by someone they cared about. This song is meant to be an anthem that you can sing and dance to in your room to cheer you up.”

Sandejas revealed that he enjoyed experimenting with synthesizers for this single.

He shared, “I literally just got the most classic ’80s synth I could find and went all out.”

And since it’s a fun-sounding single, he decided to unveil a vibrant and artistic visualizer for this release.

Watch it below:

“The track was originally supposed to only be titled BORED, but I really wanted to add “hope you’re happy” as it’s the main lyrical hook of the chorus. I really love how it’s such a passive aggressive way to tell someone that you’re on to better things now,” Sandejas said.
