Zild has unveiled his sophomore album, Huminga.
The 10-track record, featuring previously released singles 'Apat,' 'Bungantulog,' and 'Kyusi,' is the Filipino singer-songwriter's second album created in quarantine. His solo debut, Homework Machine, was released in 2020.
In a tweet, Zild wrote: "I doubted myself if I should release another record, but music has always been my tool to cope up with the madness of the world we live in."

For his latest record, Zild has enlisted the help of frequent collaborators Tim Marquez, Emil Dela Rosa, Shanne Dandan, and his dad and Barbie's Cradle drummer, Franklin Benitez. Balcony Entertainment's Rico Blanco served as the album's Executive Producer. Meanwhile, Daniel Aguilar was in charge of layout, and Shaira Luna took on the role of Creative Director.
In an interview with Bandwagon, Zild revealed that he will be taking a break from music after the release of his latest album. "I will be taking more things inwards rather than putting out something creatively. I'm grateful that I was able to write songs more honestly during these tough times," he added.
