Jay Som today announced her new album Anak Ko (which translates to “my child” in Filipino). Her sophomore album is slated to come out on August 23 via Polyvinyl Co.

Jay Som recorded the album in the comfort of her Los Angeles home. Unlike her last album, Anak Ko features a wide cast of contributors, including Vagabon, Chastity Belt’s Annie Truscott, Justus Proffit, Boy Scouts’ Taylor Vick, as well as bandmates Zachary Elasser, Oliver Pinnell and Dylan Allard. 

Today, she premiered the album’s first single and video “Superbike” which you can view below. The video gives viewers an intimate view of the writing process behind Anak Ko. Jay Som says that she “came up with the vocal melody while chopping onions during a rare snowstorm in Joshua Tree, definitely one of my favorite memories from making the album.”
