¿Cómo Te Llama? is the title of the second album of Albert Hammond, Jr. The album has 13 tracks and was released on July 7, 2008 in the UK and on July 8, 2008 in the US. "GfC" is the first single from the album, and it premiered on iLike on May 22, 2008.

On 27 May 2008, Hammond released "GfC" on iTunes in the US. The song had already been played extensively live on his 2007 tour, along with "In My Room". A non-album B-side "& So it Goes" was released along with the single.

The title ¿Cómo Te Llama? is Spanish for How does he/she/it call you?. It could be a misspelling of either ¿Cómo se llama? (formal second person singular conjugation of the present of indicative of llamar, which is Spanish for What's his/her/its/your name?) or ¿Cómo te llamas? (casual second person singular of the same tense, which is Spanish for What's your name?).
