No English in Letto’s latest album

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Mon, 05/30/2011 2:14 PM

In their first two albums, Truth, Cry and Lie, Don’t Make Me Sad and Lethologica the band Letto sang several songs in English, but not their latest album, Cinta..Bersabarlah (love, be patient) launched recently at the Jakarta Theater.
When asked about the band’s decision for the change, Letto lead singer Noe said it was the time for the band to sing all their songs in Indonesian. “Songs sung in Indonesian are indeed entertaining. We felt it was time to sing songs in Indonesian,” Noe said Monday as quoted by kapanlagi.com. Noe added that the band’s use of English received a positive response from listeners abroad, but an average response back home. “It’s time for us to [share] with our own people,” Noe said.
