The acoustic album consists of eight famous Vietnamese songs about love which were released in the 80s and 90s and are still loved by fans.
Highlighted songs include Giấc Mơ Mùa Thu (A Dream of Autumn) composed by Võ Thiện Thanh, Hà Nội Ngày Ấy (Hà Nội Back Then) by Trần Tiến, Mưa Rừng (Rain in Forest ) by Huỳnh Anh, and Thành Phố Buồn (Sad City) by Lam Phương.
Tuấn worked with his producer Thanh Phương, who has produced music for Vietnamese divas like Thanh Lam, Ngọc Anh and Trần Thu Hà, to remix and record the songs.
He also used traditional musical instruments like the flute, pan pipe and đàn tranh (16-chord zither) on his album.
The 36-year-old said the idea for the album came to him when he was confused about the world and needed time alone to regain his faith in life.
“Leaving differences behind, every man always need a corner for himself after completing his duty. We need beautiful music and time alone to whisper melodies. Music is just like that,” Tuấn said.
The album Cuối Ngày Người Đàn Ông Một Mình is one of three music projects by Tuấn in 2020, including season four of See Sing Share on YouTube, and the concert The Veston.
The concert is planned to be held on February 26 and 27 in Đà Lạt City.
Season four of See Sing Share with the theme “Trong Rừng Có Cơn Mát Lành” (A Breath of Forest Fresh Air) consists of nine videos. It began on September 14, attracting a total of 4.3 million views on YouTube.
Tuấn, a graduate of Technische Universitat Darmstadt in Hessen, Germany, rose to fame in the Sao Mai – Rendezvous TV singing contest in 2006.
He has released eight albums, including Acous’84, a production of R&B nine songs which helped the singer bring home the Golden Album of the Year presented by HCM City Television in 2010.
He works as a music producer for See Sing Share, which has had three seasons over the last five years, with a total of 30 music videos.
The show brought him prizes for Show of the Year and Music Series of the Year at the Cống Hiến (Devotion) Music Awards in 2019.
In the show, Tuấn sang his signature ballads and R&B songs which have been hits among Vietnamese youth for a decade or more, including Buổi Sáng Ở Ciao Cà Phê (Morning at Ciao Cafe) and Espresso by Võ Thiện Thanh.
He also presented favourite songs by other singers such as Người Tình Mùa Đông (Winter Lover) and Nơi Ấy Bình Yên (Peaceful Place).
His videos have attracted hundreds of millions of views.
Thanks to See Sing Share, Tuấn has become a favourite Vietnamese singer on YouTube, with more than 671,000 subscribers. — VNS
