MANILA, Philippines - Singer and songwriter Kitchie Nadal is back.

Fresh from New York after a long absence in the local music scene, Nadal toured around Europe, Canada and the US in the last two years.

She explored the music scene in each of the continents she visited and collaborated with American musicians to create new songs.

Nadal recorded new songs in the US, which will be scheduled for release within the year.

She is ready to launch her third album under a new multinational label. This will be a fresh, new sound, under a new record label and a new management.

Nadal became a phenomenon in 2003 when she made the hits “'Wag Na 'Wag Mong Sasabihin”, “Bulong”, and “Same Ground”.

Her self-titled debut album, “Kitchie Nadal”, went double platinum selling more than 100,000 units.

She was also awarded the 18th Awit Award for Best Performance by a Female Artist and Best Ballad for the song “'Wag Na 'Wag Mong Sasabihin".

The singer also bagged the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Award in 2005.

Nadal is now under 12 Stone Records management headed by Tommy Tanchanco.
