“I am excited, thrilled, proud and giddy about the product of my latest passion,” Jim said about his album.

With a profound and talented composer like Jim Paredes, expect an album with motley collection of different themes.

“Some of the new songs date back to the ’80s when I made them and had put away in a baul in my head. I never presented some of them to APO or anyone else because I felt they were not ready to be heard. Some songs were written for APO but never saw the light of day,” Jim said. “My purpose with this album is to bring forth into the world my creative offspring. Like real kids, some are modern and hip, some are old-fashioned, some like to experiment, some are moody and some are the cuddly types who enjoy making me feel good and mushy.”

“Laro” is now out in CDs under MCA Music. To download the single “Butong Pakwan” as your ringback tone, just text 5492565 and send to 2300 for Sun subscribers, KK353 and send to 2332 for Globe and BPAKWAN and send to 2728 for Smart.

"On every project I learn and change," she says. "As I’ve gotten older my image has changed a little bit. I’m more of a woman now than the kid that started on ‘Hannah Montana.’ I’ve grown up. I’ve learned a lot along the way." This so much explains Miley’s unstoppable impact on music and culture and in transition to her real life artistic liberation as manifested by her latest album, "Can’t Be Tamed," she takes one more giant leap forward, towards a more adventurous musical future.

Now, Miley’s all set to reach out to her thousands of fans here in the Philippines as she performs ‘live’ and throws a rockin’ party in Manila for her first-ever concert at the SM Mall Of Asia Concert Grounds on June 17. Coming all the way from South America after the first-leg of her “Corazon Gitano (Gypsy Heart) Tour”, this will be another spectacular event to look out for! Even Miley herself is very much thrilled about coming to exciting new territories such as the Philippines (which is the only Asian country that she will visit) for the first time. “The Gypsy Heart Tour is a dream-come-true. Not only because of all the beautiful cities I will get to visit, but also for all of the beautiful people I will get to meet…Gypsy Heart is not just a tour for me, but a mission to spread love”   

With fans all over the country raving about her current album ever since it was first released into the market last year, witnessing Miley sing her well-loved hit songs such as “Can’t Be Tamed”, “Party In The USA”, “Who Owns My Heart” and her current single “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” on stage and ‘live’ will definitely be something as surreal and as exhilarating as it can get. And as she sings on one of the new album’s most upbeat songs, "Who owns my heart? Is it love or is it art?" in truth, for Miley Cyrus, it’s always been both.
