A new ‘Your Year’ for Malay; launch this July 25

The road to the release of alternative band Malay’s debut CD is unlike any local releases. Years ago, the band digitally released “Your Year.” Due to insistent public demand, the band decided to re-record all the songs from the digital album and include two new tracks for the release of the 2014 version of “Your Year,” which will be launched this July 25 at Last Home, Ortigas Home Depot.

The album launch features performances from Malay and other bands. Entrance to the launch is the band’s CD.

“I consider this album a totally different animal from the initial digital release of ‘Your Year,’” says Malay frontman Pochoy Labog. “Now backed with the support of a major label, we've had more resources to use for production, starting with our producer, Mr. Jorel Corpus.”

With the help of their new producer, Pochoy feels that the songs in the album are closer to how he imagined it to be, or even better.

Malay is composed of Pochoy (vocals and guitars), Miguel Dayanghirang (bass), and Alden Abaca (drums).

“Working on the album took us out of our comfort zones, when needed,” states Pochoy. “I almost regret releasing the songs digitally, but I guess, it is part of the journey of this album.”

Pochoy considers this CD a “first meeting” with the listeners, and further adds, “they will experience the full sound of Malay for the first time.”

Asked why it was decided to release this album in physical format, Pochoy explains, “the decision to put this album out in CD format was brought about by requests from our listeners. I guess, to them, it is still necessary to have something tangible to experience the music.”

The music video of the album’s first single “Anak Ng Diyos” has been released on MYX.
