MANILA -- R&B singer Jay R has released a new album, five years after recording his last CD "Jay R Sings OPM Love Classics," which was released back in 2010.

Released and produced by his own labelm, HomeWorkz Music, "Elevated," which features all-original songs, was formally launched last Wednesday.

"It means so many things to be elevated. It's kind of like saying sa aking buhay na lang kailangang mag-elevate in every aspect -- in relationship, in love, in work, in career, in life in general. So I named the album that way because I feel like I'm elevated -- producing my own album under my own record label," he told reporters.

"It's my first production na ako talaga -- Jay R as an artist. Tapos all original pa all OPM," he added.

Jay R admitted that it took him months before launching his album because he was really waiting for the perfect timing.

"Timing is everything. I believe that. I released it last November and it's almost gold na. So I wanted to wait for the right time dahil ito na talaga ang right time with the new show, very maingay," added Jay R, referring to his participation on the ABS-CBN hit show "Your Face Sounds Familiar."

The songs included in Jay R's new album are: "Parachute", "Tonight", "Walking On The Stars", "LSS (Feat. Q-York)", "L-O-V-E", "Already Mine", "Wings Of A Dream", "Mama", "Falling For You", "You're The One", "Tears Of Joy", "You Are Not Alone," "Farewell," and "Follow Me."
