For her sixth studio album, Preciosa, Selena initially recorded the love song “Como Te Quiero Yo A Ti” in 1987. A revised version of the song was included on the 2004 compilation album Momentos Intimos after she passed away in 1995. Currently, “Como Te Quiero Yo A Ti” has undergone yet another revision, this time to serve as the album’s lead single, Moonchild Mixes, which will be released on August 26.
One of three new versions of old hits produced for the album is “Como Te Quiero Yo A Ti.” The remaining 10 recordings on Moonchild Mixes, most of which were made when the late vocalist was between the ages of 13 and 16, are unheard songs that have been upgraded for digital publication.
Selena’s brother, A.B. Quintanilla, who produced the record, told ABC News:
“Everything was recorded on vinyl. So we had to kind of fuse the old school ways with the new school ways. Clean Selena’s vocals, put them on timing. And then we also pitched her vocal down just a hair to make her sound a little bit more mature.”
