January 29th, 2021

Since its initial release in 2006, the album and its title track of the same name have solidified their place in Pinoy pop culture history, garnering a cult following and numerous covers, which have collectively amassed hundreds of thousands of views.

Self-composed, arranged, and produced, the album speaks to token Pinoy sensibility and sentimentality, with lyrics and music that have resonated through the years about a love yearned for and lost.

In commemoration of the 15 years since its initial release, the album is now available on all digital platforms for the first time. A remastered version of the official music video will also be released at 6PM on February 5, 2021 in line with February’s season of love, refreshing the song, and the album’s relevance to audiences old and new.
