Earlier this month, Filipino group Ben&Ben dropped “Upuan,” the first single off their upcoming sophomore album to be released under Sony Music.
The song that painted the imagery of young love was written all the way back in 2019.
The acclaimed hitmakers described the new track as “the palpable romantic tension that arises from friendships that are formed by sitting next to each other, and the adventurous conversations that ensue.”
For its lyrics, the nine-piece collective said they added visual for a nostalgic look on young love, “of falling in love with someone they just met, whether that is in a classroom, by the beach, at a restaurant.”
The music of “Upuan,” on the other hand, was conceived during a random jamming session with no prior agenda as to how it would sound.
However, the group said to their surprise the first jamming brought the soul of how the new single sounds now.
“Upuan” was recorded in the band’s home studio.
