It has been a little over a year since Hong Kong singer-songwriter Alan Tam (譚詠麟) released new music, but the legendary pop singer is now back again with the ballad “A Little Bit of Love” <點點天地心>, a song so uplifting and inspiring that it will help others look at the world in a new light.
As Alan’s first plug for 2013, Alan wrote and co-produced “A Little Bit of Love” with Johnny Yim. Poon Yuen Leung (潘源良), best known for his works with George Lam (林子祥) in the early eighties and nineties, penned the lyrics.
The enlightening lyrics speak about the wisdom behind the phrase, “the descendants taste what the ancestors’ sow” – it was our ancestors who helped plant new opportunities us, and instead of asking what we could take out of it, we should instead focus on how we can give, and like our ancestors, to help plant a new set of roads for our children.
The “A Little Bit of Love” music video, which was released on August 22, features the stunning scenery of Hong Kong skyscrapers and green mountains, including Kowloon Peak, the popular Southorn Playground, and the top of Central Ferry Piers. Standing in eight hours of sun is exhausting, but the 63-year-old Alan is thankful that Hong Kong was not in its usual summer weather of building clouds and rain during the filming.
An avid fan of football, Alan also featured the Guangdong youth league Sunray Cave. There are also scenes of Alan attending a cooking class and guest star Bennett Pang (彭健新) playing on a guitar.
Alan’s brand new studio album will be released in September 2013.
