One of Malaysia's leading rock bands, Hujan have finally released their latest and also their fifth studio album, "Jika Sempat", which is now available on all digital platforms including Spotify as well as at video and record stores nationwide.

To celebrate the launch of their new album and also their 10 year anniversary, Hujan has embarked on their "Hujan London Tour" in the United Kingdom since 24 May 2016. 

Consisting of five members including Noh Salleh (vocalist), Hezry Hafidz better known as AG Coco (guitarist), Azham Ahmad (drummer), Hang Dimas (keyboardist) and Izzat Uzaini (bassist), Hujan described their new album as "the journey of Hujan from the beginning until today". 

During the launch of their 12-track album at Warner Music Malaysia recently, Hujan talked about the album in more detail, the inspiration behind the songs, their fanbase, as well as the absence of Hang Dimas in their album and tour. 

AG mentioned that this album is the fastest in terms of its production timeline. Why is it so fast? Was the album rushed?

AG: I guess it's because of my experience. I've produced many albums for other artistes, and because this is the album for my own band, so maybe that's why it is a lot smoother and faster. 

Also, when we made the previous album, we had experienced all the problems and troubles, so for this album we already knew how to avoid them

Noh, the album's title song "Jika Sempat" is your song right? Can you give us some insight on that song? 

Noh: "Jika Sempat" is a song that I wrote in 2008 or 2009. In this album, more than 10 songs are actually old songs that we've kept in our archives. The only news songs are "Pemicu Gila" and "Kau". I never thought that AG would include the song "Jika Sempat" in this album because he previously rejected the song when I suggested it to him. 

AG: Yeah, most of the songs in this album are actually rejected songs. But we rejected them because we thought that they were not suitable, or because it wasn't the best time to release the songs, until now that is.
