PolyEast Records has announced Karylle’s new album “A Different Playground,” now out in the market.
In Karylle’s recent interviews, the singer-actress-TV host openly expressed the “pressure” of having a musician-songwriter-band vocalist for a husband.
Now, however, Karylle is obviously more used to the “pressure.”
“I can do songs faster because Yael always writes songs at home. He is very used to it, so I have to be more comfortable with it also,” says Karylle. “Now that we have a studio at home, I have to write songs more efficiently.”
She adds, “The pressure is there, but in a good way. I have to keep up.”
The result? Karylle’s latest album “A Different Playground.”
The new album boasts of original songs that capture Karylle’s playful side as a person, songwriter and performer.
Karylle penned most of the songs in the album, including the hit upbeat track “Can’t Shut Up.” The song is obviously a song she wrote for husband Yael, who, according to her, loves to talk.
She shows her versatility in the memorable tracks “Half A Million” and “Sunny Daze.”
Karylle collaborates with childhood friend Robin Nievera in “Sunflowers.” (Trivia: Karylle loves sunflowers.)
The singer-actress opens the album on a high note with a Kiko Salazar-penned song “Baliktanaw,” which was launched last February 20 on the noontime show “It’s Showtime.” She, however, goes sentimental with Tito Cayamanda’s “Paano Ko Tuturuan ang Puso.”
The album also includes Karylle’s surprising rendition of the classic song “Tenderly,” which highlights her silky, sexy voice.
Years ago, Karylle topbilled Ballet Philippine’s revival of the Ballet-Musical “Rama Hari,” where she played the role of the female lead Sita. In the musical, she performed the production’s most memorable song “Magbalik Ka Na Mahal,” which she recorded for this new album. The song was composed by no less than Maestro Ryan Cayabyab and Bienvenido Lumbera.
For this album, Karylle works with her own band The Passport Holders, composed of musical director and saxophonist Alvin Cornista, bassist Piox Asparen, guitarist Edwin Dimaranan, and drummer Chris Cantada.
