Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, October 2) — Here are new songs to accompany you through these tough times.

American indie pop band LANY released Friday its 10 newest tracks from “mama’s boy,” which lead vocalist Paul Klein described as their “best album yet.”

The group — composed of three musicians — has already dropped four songs from mama’s boy earlier this year — ‘good guys,’ ’if this is the last time,’ ‘you!’ and ‘cowboy in LA.’

All 14 songs are about 14 different emotions and nuances, Klein told CNN Philippines’ New Day.

“We put every last drop of energy into this album, with the hopes that people will connect to it,” he said.

The making

Klein shared they went to Nashville in Tennessee, United States, long referred to as “Music City,” to write six of the music releases for mama’s boy, which is their third album.

“I was really interested in telling stories in the songs and writing well-thought-out articulated songs versus the commercial pop song environment here in L.A. (Los Angeles), so we went there (Nashville) for two weeks in September of 2019.”

He said they stayed there to collaborate with people in Nashville, where a lot of famed musicians, such as Taylor Swift, have kick-started their careers.

Returning to the Philippines

Klein is ‘one-trillion percent’ sure he and the rest of his bandmates, will come back to the Philippines once the pandemic is over, he said, adding they miss their Filipino supporters already.

“The second we can come back, we definitely will, I promise,” Klein said.

He said for now, while people around the world continue to live under physical distancing rules due to the health crisis, fans could listen to their new tracks, in the hopes they would love them, and provide them comfort.

Last year, LANY had three-day sold-out shows in the Philippines, which made it the first foreign act to do so.
