Jay Som Announces New Album Anak Ko, Shares “Superbike”

Jay Som has announced plans to release her sophomore album to be released in late summer. Anak Ko (pronounced Ah-nuh Koh) is the follow-up to Jay Som’s well-received debut, 2017’s Everybody Works and is scheduled to arrive on August 23 via Polyvinyl.

Along with the album announcement, Jay Som has released the project’s first single “Superbike,” a gorgeous and dreamy record that is plenty enchanting. “I 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,” Jay Som said in a press release. “Superbike” comes with a new music video showing archival footage of the making of Anak Ko. Jay Som has also announced a number of dates for a major North American and international tour. Check out the album and tour details, and listen to “Superbike,” below.
