The Ransom Collective bassist and vocalist Leah Halili is set to release a new song titled “Change.”

“The song touches on the brevity of life and the richness of experiences,” Halili says, in a press statement. “It emphasizes the belief in enduring truths despite pain, focusing on the positive and hope that surround us.”

“For this specific track, I wanted to achieve something really different compared to my previous singles: ambient, soft sounds with echoey vocals and a little bit of electric, dancey vibe. But at the center of it all is a pop tune that fits well with my personality. It’s still very me.”

The track was written by Halili and produced by celebrated experimental-indie artist and label founder Nick Lazaro. “Change” will premiere on streaming platforms this January 13 (Saturday). On January 12, she will premiere her new song live at Jess & Pat’s in Quezon City, with guest performers Leanne & Naara as well as The Ransom Collective bandmates Lily Gonzales and Muriel Gonzales. The show will start at 5PM for her debut performance and tickets can be purchased at the door.

The singer-songwriter made her solo debut with the release of “Miracle Mountain” in 2017. Since then, she released four more singles, “Fourth of July,” “Lost In You,” “The Christmas Waltz,” and “Clear To Me.” “Change” will be her first release since 2022.

Last December, The Ransom Collective reunited for Gabi Na Naman’s Year-Ender Gig at 123 Block. This was the first time the band has been complete since their reunion concert held in February 2023.
