“Metamorphosis means change and transformation, and that’s what this album is all about. Metamorphosis doesn’t really take out who you really are, but it changes you for the better,” Yeng explained. “It’s about not being afraid of who you can be. And that best describes my new album that carries my new sound, and the new Yeng.”
The 24-year-old Pinoy Dream Academy Season 1 grand winner further shared that “Metamorphosis” does not only present her new music but her striking statement red hair as well.
“The red hair is not just part of the album. It’s a part of who I am now in this season of my life. I can say that my hair color represents my passion for music now–flaming hot,” she said. “And if there’s anything that I want to say to my supporters through my new look, it’s that I want them to be brave to experiment to unleash their real personalities.”
According to Yeng, the album’s carrier single “B.A.BA.Y” is one of the best songs that introduces the brand new her. “The song showcases almost everything that’s new about me now–new sound, new songwriting, and a new chapter in my life. For sure, the listeners and those who’ll watch the music video will enjoy ‘B.A.BA.Y’ because it will make them dance with its upbeat sound.”
Although determined to stand out and create an impact, Yeng confessed that she was initially concerned whether or not her fans are ready to listen to her new music. “At first, I was worried if my supporters are ready for this change. But I thought it’s good because I’m giving them something new. And personally, I also want to challenge myself to do things that will excite me,” Yeng related.
Produced by Filipino rock icon Raimund Marasigan, “Metamorphosis” is a 10-track all-original album that features nine of Yeng’s compositions. “Releasing this all-original album brings so much joy in my heart. I felt like I have a new contribution to Philippine music in this generation,” said the Philippines’ Pop Rock Princess, who hopes to inspire fellow musicians to go original. “I believe that this will have a domino effect. Hopefully, a lot of artists will be encouraged to write and release their original songs.”
Aside from “B.A.B.A.Y,” “Metamorphosis” also features nine of Yeng’s compostions including “Hahanapin Kita,” “Josephine,” “Messiah,” “Pasensya Na,” “Sana ‘Di Pa Huli,” “Teleserye,” “Pag-ibig,” and “Sandata.” The song “Chinito” was written by Jed Dumawal.
