In an interview with Bandwagon, Ben&Ben revealed that each member will be contributing a song for the next album - 'Pasalubong' was arranged and produced by percussionist Andrew De Pano. In a series of tweets, De Pano shares how he's put his heart into the new track and how he hopes fans will enjoy listening. He also shares what it was like working with their collaborator, Moira. "Thank you for trusting me, and for making 'Pasalubong' what it is today."
Immensely excited to share this with all of you. Some of you may have heard that for Album 2, songs have been assigned to each of us to oversee, arrange, and produce. This one’s my contribution and I’ve put my all my heart proudly on display for it. I really hope you like it. ❤️ https://t.co/3s3DAx4LxF— Andrew De Pano (@andrewdepano) July 27, 2021
