In her latest single “Breathe Again”, Serene opens up about a personal story that embodies the soul of her loss and the metamorphosis of her grief.
It is one of her most honest works yet, raw and unafraid to show you her tears or glimpses of her profound sorrow in having to say one of the hardest goodbyes. While the thought of laying herself bare like this makes her anxious, she followed her heart, as she always has when it comes to her music and it led her here.
In retrospect, producing “Breathe Again” was part of her healing process and it is this story of finding light and courage that she wishes to share, longing to comfort others who feel trapped by their own pain. Now more than ever, she discovers there is strength in vulnerability. That we heal by sharing our stories. We are, not alone.

"WHEN IT LEADS ME BACK TO YOU"
OST for the Drama Series "SLOW DANCING"
“When It Leads Me Back To You“ is written, performed and produced by Serene Koong for the original soundtrack for “Slow Dancing”; the first print to screen collaboration between Wattpad and Mediacorp of the highest-rated internet novel by a Singaporean writer on the global storytelling platform.
The song draws inspiration from the series that revolves around universally relatable themes of love, loss and longing. It is a warm reflection of how destiny intricately leads us to what is meant for us.

"SAVE ME FROM MYSELF"
Theme Song for the Drama Series KIN
Check out Serene's latest single "Save Me From Myself", which she composed, performed and produced for the MediaCorp Channel 5 drama series "KIN". A song that reflects that state of mind, feeling tired from the emotions and thoughts we battle within ourselves, living in a world that thrives on perceived reality, often so fleeing that we lose sight of our heart, and who we are. Through this song, Serene expresses that we can find courage to love every part of us, and live life on our own terms. To connect within and with those around us and we will rise above all odds and be truly free in mind and spirit.
