Thyro said he is one of composers tapped to write a song for Sarah's new album.

"We've collaborated with her on this new album but I won't elaborate first," he said.

Sarah's latest album, "Perfectly Imperfect," was released in 2014 and spawned the hit "Kilometro."

Thyro and his girlfriend Yumi Lacsamana are behind the some of Sarah's recent hits like "Kilometro," "Ikot Ikot" and "Dulo."

When they were first tapped to do a single for the Popstar Princess, Thyro and Yumi decided to give Sarah a "different" sound, citing the song "Ikot Ikot" which is part of the 2013 album "Expressions."

"You know what we just find what is different," Thyro explained. "Kasi ang 'Ikot Ikot makulit siya sa tenga."

He also described the song "Kilometro," saying its intent was "to attract because of its complexity. It's simple enough pero there's a lot of complexity there."
