COMING SOON. Ben&Ben is set to release their sophomore album in August.

Sony Music Philippines

Ben&Ben's sophomore album will have 12 songs, including six special collaborations

Indie-folk pop band Ben&Ben is releasing their sophomore album on August 29. 

The band announced the news through their social media accounts on Saturday, August 7, revealing that the album will contain 12 tracks. The band has yet to announce the new album name.

“Album two is coming. 12 all-Filipino songs, with six special collabs,” they wrote in the caption. 

In a separate post, the band members are seen preparing yellow envelopes with the words “Pagbati mula sa Ben&Ben house (Greetings from the Ben&Ben house)” written on it. 

Ben&Ben has already released three songs from their upcoming album. Their first single “Upuan” was released in May. A week after, the band released the second single “Magpahinga.” Lead vocalist and guitarist Paolo Benjamin said that the song “reminds us to check up on ourselves and address our own inner struggles.” 

In July, Ben&Ben collaborated with Moira dela Torre for “Pasalubong,” the third track from their upcoming album. 

“We’re really pushing forward in terms of experimentation and diversity of sound in the songs,” the band said about their sophomore album. Their debut album Limasawa Street was released in May 2019. 

Aside from their upcoming album, Ben&Ben has also been busy collaborating with other artists. In May, the band released a reimagined version of their 2017 hit “Leaves” with DAY6’s Young K. They also worked with SB19 for the band version of “MAPA,” which was released in June 2021. – Rappler.com
