Ben&Ben have unveiled ‘Magpahinga’, the latest single off the Filipino folk-pop band’s upcoming sophomore album.

The piano ballad follows last week’s single ‘Upuan’, which channelled misty-eyed high school nostalgia. On the other hand, ‘Magpahinga’ is an introspective single that navigates the depths of compassion and self-care. It arrived with a lyric video featuring the band performing the song in the band’s personal residence, where the song was written and recorded.

Watch the lyric video of ‘Magpahinga’ below.

“It’s a song that reminds us to check up on ourselves and address our own inner struggles,” lead vocalist and guitarist Paolo Benjamin said in a statement. “But also, it is a song that aims to accompany the listener, and remind them that in those moments of hardship, they are not alone.”

The band previously teased a rollout of new music in an Instagram post, indicating that an official ‘Magpahinga’ music video will be released on May 23.
