Kany Garcia releases her most personal album to date

San Juan, May 23 (efe-epa).- Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Kany Garcia on Wednesday told EFE that her new album is her most personal record to date.

"With this record, I'm trying to express what I think when I hear, read about or imagine certain situations," the 36-year-old winner of three Latin Grammy awards said regarding her fifth studio album.

The singer said that "Soy yo" (This is Me) - which features appearances by artists such as Spanish singer Melendi, as well as Puerto Rican rapper and former Calle 13 frontman Residente - is a very "eclectic record," adding that it is "the kind that gets to you, with many universes happening all at once on a musical level."

However, Garcia emphasized that despite the fact that the album contains personal songs such as "Confieso" (I Confess) - which she dedicated to her father, Antonio Garcia, a former Catholic priest who died last year - it is not autobiographical.

The artist also said that what sets her new album apart from the past four is the fact that she worked closely on it with her six-musician band, led by Marcos Sanchez, the album's main producer.

"Doing it with my band made everything easier," Garcia said about her new album, which was released on May 18. "They know what I like and what I don't like, so it was easier."
