MANILA -- After her successful "Annebisyosa" world tour in 2012, Anne Curtis is gearing up for a return to the concert scene, this time with a show dubbed "Annekapal."

During a recent press event celebrating her 29th birthday, the actress-host announced the new production, which is scheduled in May.

Like her previous concert series, "Round 2: Annekapal" will coincide with the release of a new CD, according to Curtis, who has so far recorded five tracks for "The Forbidden Album."

Curtis, a self-confessed "non-singer," was thrilled to share that "a lot of legit singers" contributed songs for her new album, including Christian Bautista, Billy Crawford, Marcus Davis and Teddy Corpuz.

"May original tapos meron ding covers," Curtis added.

Asked if she thinks her singing voice has improved since her debut record, a laughing Curtis said, "I think so!"

Unlike before when she would describe her singing as "baliw" (crazy), Curtis said the term now only applies to her over-the-top performances.

"Baliw in the sense na lang na kung anu-ano 'yung mga pinaggagawa ko, buwis-buhay lagi 'di ba?"

Curtis was happy to share that she received good feedback about her recent performance for theValentine's Day episode of "It's Showtime."

"Ang daming nag-feedback, 'Uy, ang ganda na ng voice ni Anne!' Kasi 'Runaway.' I think pinipili lang [ng boses ko] 'yung song!" she said.

Aside from her upcoming album and concert, Curtis is gearing up for several other high-profile projects, including ABS-CBN's adaptation of Mars Ravelo's "Dyesebel" and the comedy film "The Gifted."
