Jakarta. Indonesian pop star Raisa Andriana has released her third studio album, entitled "Handmade," online last week. The album is available for streaming on Apple Music as well as digital purchase on iTunes, the singer announced on her Facebook page.

The 11-track album features the lead single "Kali Kedua" ("The Second Time"), which was first introduced last March. For this particular song, Raisa enlisted the help of Dewi "Dee" Lestari, acclaimed author and member of Rida Sita Dewi, a vocal trio popular in the 1990s.

Nine songs in the album, meanwhile, were written by Raisa herself, as reported by Rolling Stone Indonesia. Among those new tracks are "Sang Rembulan" ("The Moon"), "Tentang Cinta" ("About Love") and "Letting You Go."

Raisa's duet with pop star Afgan, "Percayalah" ("Believe"), also makes an appearance in the new record. The song was originally a soundtrack for Asep Kusdinar's recently released romantic drama, "London Love Story."

"Handmade" is a follow-up to Raisa's previous albums — a self-titled record in 2011 and "Heart to Heart" two years after. She also released a compilation album of her greatest hits, "The Best of Raisa," last March.
