Mumbai, (IANS) Singer Sonu Nigam launched his father Agam Kumar Nigam’s latest album “Phir Se Bewafaai” at an event here.
The music and the lyrics of the album have been composed by Saawan Kumar Saawan.
“This is my sixth album… it is completely different from my previous five albums and this contains a distinct flavour. It is very close to our hearts. The situation this time was different as Sonuji’s mother and my wife had passed away. And post that for the next one and half years, we were in despair. Saawan approached me for a project, when he played the songs it felt really close to my heart due to the situation we were in and we readied the album according to this,” said Agam Kumar Nigam.
Sonu stressed the importance of launching an album when actually the industry is struggling and digital medium has taken over. “In today’s generation, music albums are not made regularly. But despite this, it’s his sixth album that is coming out, which definitely indicates that his albums have a fixed and outstanding market. T-Series is again releasing this album and we just hope that this will be appreciated by people.”
“People have started letting go, but he still aggressively sings. When he sings on the stage, the whole arena starts vibrating. That’s the amount of power, emotions and passion in his songs. So he is an inspiration which makes us feel that if our father can do it, why not us? So we also have to tighten our belts and become like him,” said Sonu, lauding his father’s continuing determination.
Sonu who had composed the music for Sunny Deol’s “Singh Saab The Great” is working on his single and will come out with his album soon.
