Jay Som Shares New Single “Superbike,” Announces New Album

Melina Duterte, known to music fans as Jay Som, announces her sophomore album, Anak Ko, (Polyvinyl Record Co.) pronounced Ah-nuh Koh, and meaning “my child” in Filipino. It’s the follow-up to her 2017 breakout debut album Everybody Works, While much has changed both sonically and personally for Jay Som in the two whirlwind years since her debut, Duterte still recorded, produced, engineered and mixed this album herself at home, though this time in her newly adoptive city of Los Angeles. Additionally, for the first time, Duterte invited some friends -including Vagabon’s Laetitia Tamko, Chastity Belt’s Annie Truscott, Justus Proffit, Boy Scouts’ Taylor Vick, as well as bandmates Zachary Elasser, Oliver Pinnell and Dylan Allard-to collaborate on additional vocals, drums, guitars, strings, and pedal steel. Anak Ko is set to drop August 23rd.
