MANILA -- KZ Tandingan on Tuesday launched her second album "Soul Supremacy" under Star Music.
 
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Tandingan noted that it has been four years since she recorded her debut album.

"Kung ano 'yung nakita niyo sa akin sa audition noon sa 'X Factor' mas makikita niyo dito. Nagra-rap ako and singing ballads. Sa first album ang pinarinig ko sa inyo ay ballad side ko, 'yung roots ko sa Pinoy soul. Sa album na ito mas nagra-rap na ako, very technical pa din 'yung music, pero mas light na. Hindi na kasing lungkot noong una kong album," Tandingan said.

"Mas hands-on ako sa album na ito. Super naging honest ako with my opinions (sa pagbuo) nito. Mas ako ang album na ito," she added.

For the new album, Tandingan composed a song ("Halik Na Lang") and also wrote the lyrics for another ("Intro Lude").

Other songs included in the album are "Labo," "Nag-Iisa Na Naman," "Dapithapon," "Imposible," "Afraid," "With You," "Siya'y Darating," "Sayang," and "Sa Aking Mga Kamay."

The additional tracks are "Sa 'Yo," "Mahal Ko O Mahal Ako" and "Ikaw At Ako Pa Rin."

Tandingan's sophomore CD is available in all digital stores worldwide but the physical album will be available soon at record bars nationwide.

Aside from a local release, Tandingan's "Soul Supremacy" will also be launched in Singapore via The Academy of Rock Singapore.

"To be able to be given a chance to release an album dito sa Pilipinas ay napakalaking blessing na 'yon dahil di lahat ng artist nabibigyan ng ganoong pagkakataon. Pero 'yung makapag-launch ka sa ibang bansa that's another story, ibang milestone 'yon sa career mo," Tandingan said.
