Album title[edit]

"Parang may swagger siya na... in this time, this place, I'll be there. Pero at the same time, meron din siyang parang dramatic element... time, date, place, setting. Parang part of a narrative or something... Parang may kuwento siya." -Yael Yuzon[2]

The album's title comes from the 12th track "Araw Oras Tagpuan" which means date, time, setting.


  • "Tambay", the song was first released from the band's EP Tambay. The song's music video were released on April 19, 2011, and has already amassed over 2 million views.[3]
  • "Kay Tagal Kitang Hinintay", the song was first released from the band's 4th album. The song's music video were released on December 21, 2011, and has already amassed over 1 million views. The song is all about a love ballad; about waiting for that perfect someone and when it comes; it also describes the amazement and disbelief that the girl has accepted the man. The video was shot in Negros Occidental.
  • "She Wants You To" is the 5th single and the most obscure of all released tracks from this album. The song is the only song released as a radio and internet single and the only song with no music video. The song is quite somber in tone, particularly, it is a continuation and reverse of the story that had occurred in the lyrics of "Kay Tagal Kitang Hinintay". The song is also set in English, and is the reverse of the supposedly emotional meaning of the Tagalog lyrics of "Kay Tagal Kitang Hinintay". Because of its hidden nature and less exposure, the song is only known by a few people.
