Singer Andien has released a new single in collaboration with musicians Yovie Widianto and Andi Rianto, titled “Jendela Waktu” (Window of Time).

Andien said in a statement that she believed separation, the song's theme, is an integral part of life.

“With this song, I’d like to ask everyone not to dismiss their feelings of sadness or dread from a separation. Let’s embrace it,” she said. “Let the moment become our chance to dig deep and get to know ourselves better.”

The jazzy singer embraces pop imbued with orchestra in the new single, reciting lyrics such as, “This love will not perish/Even though we look at different skies/This love is staying/Though we are looking out of different windows of time”.

Composer Yovie said he was convinced to work on the song as the feeling captured in the single would be familiar to anyone.

“The strength of the song is how relevant it is, as everyone has experienced partings in their lives,” he said.

With his sweet melodies and mighty hooks, Yovie is known to have a penchant for ballads. He founded the successful and long-lasting Kahitna group, with dozens of hits from the mid-1990s that spawned numerous cover versions. The composer also wrote hit songs for acclaimed solo singers, including Ruth Sahanaya, Chrisye, Glenn Fredly and Rita Effendy.

Andi, who acted as producer and arranger on the single, said it was an honor to collaborate with Andien and Yovie.

“They are two of the best musicians and singers in Indonesia,” he said.

Andien has released seven studio albums since 2000, with 2017’s Metamorfosa being her latest.

“Jendela Waktu” is available on music streaming platforms. (wng)
