As confirmed by the press release, the upcoming single will be titled ‘WYAT (Where You At)’, and will be a “disco-pop” track that is set to arrive on streaming platforms on September 2 alongside an official music video.

“You pump my blood and my soul is alive,” read a caption on SB19’s post on Twitter, which came with the hashtag #WhereYouAtSB19.

The band have also confirmed via a press release that they will headline a solo concert at the Araneta Coliseum on September 17. Further details surrounding the show will be announced at a later date.

Following the concert, SB19 will embark upon a tour of the Philippines, which will see them perform in Clark, Cebu, Davao and more. After wrapping up the Philippines tour, they will embark upon a world tour beginning in October that will take the P-pop act to Singapore, the United States, the United Arab Emirates and more. More information will be shared in the coming months.

On August 7, SB19 uploaded a short video of a mock radio news report of the discovery of a ‘gadget from the future’ in Manila, with five unidentified men leaving the scene.

The “report” was later interrupted by an update that saw the location of the men travelling “thousands of miles in a span of seconds.”

The first post was followed up with several other short videos featuring captions of what may appear to be lyrics to the upcoming single.

The announcement on Thursday also comes less than a week after SB19 performed a showcase at the Green Mark concert in conjuction with Acer Day 2022.

In May, SB19 collaborated with indie-folk band Ben&Ben in a song titled ‘Kapangyarihan’ ahead of the Filipino elections. In July, SB19 also shared a new rendition of ‘Win Your Heart’, the theme song for Binibining Pilipinas, the Philippines’ national beauty pageant.
