#MusicPH - Together, Ben&Ben and Pamungkas perform "Stand By You" in a performance video.

Recently, Indonesian singer-songwriter Pamungkas and the nine-piece Filipino collective Ben&Ben collaborated to make a performance video of "Stand By You." The catchy pop-rock original, which is an English translation of Ben & Ben's 2022 hit "Paninindigan Kita," was recorded last August 5 at SoundCheck Studio in Pasig City (Friday).

Prior to the live studio session, both regional superstars were introduced to each other online last month, and got the chance to brainstorm on how to approach the song with a collaborative mindset. “We sent over a rough translation of our song Paninindigan Kita,” shares Ben&Ben in a statement. “He [Pamungkas] came up with brilliant lyrical ideas, and we ended up co-writing the English lyrics for this song with him.”

Ben&Ben and Pamungkas recently recorded a live rendition of "Stand By You" with a bigger, more complex arrangement and reallocated verses in advance of their sold-out event at 123 Block in Mandaluyong City, the Philippines. The top-charting Filipino band is really pleased with the session's outcome and how it combined the greatest elements of both worlds into one work.

“There was a natural chemistry between both artists,” says
Ben&Ben. “This came out in the way the instruments were arranged and the different parts were worked into the final version of the performance.”

Ben&Ben also praised Pamungkas on how he managed to add a totally new vibe to the song, while injecting his own flair into the instrumentation. “This made the collaborative version very distinct in a way that represents both styles blended into one performance, instead of it being a straightforward cover version of the song.”

“Stand By You” is the first of the two-part collaboration between the prolific and award-winning Asian artists. They’re also set to release the performance video of “I Got To Get You” soon.

Pamungkas is now promoting his fourth studio album, Birdy, with a solo Southeast Asian tour. His smash track "To The Bone" was a tremendous regional hit; it peaked at No. 5 on the Spotify Philippines Top 50 charts last year and topped the Spotify Indonesia Top 50 charts for several weeks. In other Southeast Asian nations, including Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia, the song also did well commercially.

With their first North American tour, Ben&Ben is ready to take the world by storm. They'll be playing in renowned and important venues in nine US and Canadian cities. Ahead of their farewell show on September 3 at the CCP Open Grounds, they are also getting ready with the release of their brand-new worldwide song this month.
