White Shoes & the Couples Company recently performed a set on the ongoing online series Berbagi Musik Session, in which they debuted the new song ‘Rumah’.
Besides ‘Rumah’, which is from the Indonesian pop band’s upcoming album ‘2020’, the set included ‘Masa Remadja’, ‘Nothing to Fear’ and ‘Aksi Kucing’.
The jazzy five-piece turned up as part of the ongoing Indonesia Siap Siaga campaign, which is raising funds to support victims of the recent West Suwalesi earthquake.

‘2020’ is set to be released on February 1 via Demajors, marking WSATCC’s first full studio album in over 10 years.
The band first announced the album in December 2020. They also launched pre-orders for the limited CD edition, which also includes a separate compilation of 10 B-sides and a 60-page hardcover photo album. The band’s label has only pressed 2,020 copies of this edition.
Weeks before that, the band offered fans a taste of the new album with single ‘Irama Cita’, which was issued on limited 10-inch vinyl. Watch the lyric video below.
‘2020’ is the band’s third full studio album, after releasing their self-titled debut album in 2005 and ‘Album Vakansi’ in 2010. Aside from two mini albums, ‘Skenario Masa Muda’ (2007) and ‘Menyanyikan Lagu-Lagu Daerah’ (2012), the band spent the decade touring various countries in Europe and Southeast Asia.
