After a four-year hiatus from the recording scene, Aiza Seguerra releases her new album, her first under Star Records. The album is titled Para Lang Sa 'Yo (Songs Inspired by Ysabella) and was released yesterday, September 20, at the Packo's Grill in South Triangle, Quezon City.
Ysabella is the ABS-CBN television series starring Judy Ann Santos, Ryan Agoncillo, Derek Ramsey, and Aiza herself.
The 10-track album contains revivals and original compositions. "Para Lang Sa 'Yo" is the carrier single, composed by Jonathan Manalo. He also served as the producer of the album.
"The general idea of the album is bringing Aiza back into the mainstream. [Because] she's known for her soothing and cooling voice," Jonathan told PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during the media launch.
Also in the album is the theme song of Ysabella, "Huwag Mong Iwan ang Puso," an Ogie Alcasid composition and originally sung by Pinoy Dream Academy grand scholar Yeng Constantino. Other revivals in the album are Louie Ocampo's "I'll Be There for You" and a Didith Reyes hit, "Bakit Ako Mahihiya."
"Song choices for the album are inspired by the love angles of Ysabella. Alam mo naman ang mga Pinoy, sentimental. Anything na sweet sa tenga nila, yun yung habol ng mga Pinoy," the noted composer added.
Aiza contributed one song to the album, her original "Sana Di Lang Puro Sana" with former Rizal Underground member and PEP blogger, Mike Villegas. Other originals are "Persistent Rain" by Christian Martinez and Cynthia Roque, "Walang Sayang" by Moy Ortiz, and "Kasama" by Ricky Sanchez.
Extra features of the album are music videos of the tracks "Para Lang Sa ‘Yo" and "Walang Sayang."
Ryan Agoncillo provided beautiful photographs of Aiza for the album.
Aiza encourages her fans to get a copy of her new album in record stores nationwide. Star Records is also making the album available worldwide.
