Much to the delight and surprise of her passionate fans (endearly called “Yengsters”), Pop Rock Superstar Yeng Constantino released her special 5-track “Reimagined” EP on the midnight of July 28, 2023. As the title implies, the EP is a collection of selected original songs from different eras in Yeng’s storied musical journey with an updated and unified sound and interpretation. Given that Yeng now has the rights to her vast back catalog, it’s easy to understand why the just-released EP is a dream come true for the award-winning singer-songwriter and why it is just the first of many planned “reimagined” releases to come.
“Makalipas ang ilang taon, nasa pangangalaga ko na ang aking music catalogue. At dahil dyan binigyan ko ng bagong bihis ang ilan sa mga kantang minahal nyo galing sakin. Ito ang REIMAGINED. Unang lima sa marami pang susunod. Palagi akong magpapasalamat sa lahat ng suportang binigay at binibigay nyo sakin. Alay ko lahat ng ito sa inyo Yengsters!” shared Yeng in her social media post dated July 25, 2023.
Here’s the official tracklist of the EP:
“Tatlong kantang naging single ko na fan favorites at gustong gusto ko kinakanta ng live (Lapit, Salamat, Ako Muna). Isang track na hindi naging single pero isa sa mga paboritong nasulat ko (Pag Ayaw Mo Na). Isang kantang sinulat ko para sa iba na binigyan ng sarili kong timpla (Kasalanan Ko Ba for Ms. Jaya),” Yeng explained in a social media post revealing the tracklist.
Eager fans and music lovers praised Yeng’s musicality for how she breathed new life to her past songs and how she managed to make different songs from different albums sound as if they came from the same era.
While Yeng wore the producer’s hat for this EP, Ria Osorio also played a crucial role, serving as a producer and overall arranger. It is also worth noting that Yeng had an all-female band to help her bring the reimagined tracks to life.
The “Reimagined” EP is distributed by Republic Records Philippines and is now available to stream on all major music streaming platforms. The lyric videos are now also available on Yeng’s YouTube channel.
