World Champion Jed Madela sold thousands of records reviving some of the most memorable ballads in his previous albums. Now, he is all set to fulfill his promise of recording new songs in his seventh album "Breathe Again."

“I am keeping my word, promise,” says Jed of his newest album. “It took some time because I really want to give you something exceptional and incomparable.” The album, composed primarily of beautifully-written original songs, exhibits his versatility and range as a vocalist.

“I have set a tight standard when I chose each song for this album,” he admits. “These new songs will make everyone…. Breathe Again.”

"Breathe Again" is a beautiful ballad that speaks about the different facets of love- its ups and downs, joys and pains.

When asked to describe some outstanding tracks in the album, he describes “Larawan” as something vocally-challenging, while “Ikaw Na Lang Ang Kulang” as a stirring ballad.

Jed also tries interpreting more upbeat songs as he performs "I Have You Here" and "We’re Having A Party."

Aside from the nine original songs, "Breathe Again" also gives in to requests for Jed to record some revivals. Kris Aquino asked Jed to record Fra Lippo Lippi’s "Later."

Jed also revived Lani Misalucha’s "Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin," Peabo Bryson’s "If Ever You’re In My Arms Again," Barry Manilow’s "I Made It Through The Rain," and Fantasia Barrino’s "I Believe," which made Jed trend when he performed the song on ASAP Rocks.

Aside from the launch of "Breathe Again," Jed will headline a special concert "Beyond Expectations" this November 26 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines with Ballet Manila, Gary Valenciano and Martin Nievera as guests.

I'm very into 80s new wave and italo and came across this sample. His album Homework shot to popularity as soon as it got released in the year 1997. I don't
know if the vocals sampled are from some old song because it has
got a really 80s vibe to it.
