Farhan Akhtar has launched his music album ‘Echoes’, globally. This is the actor-director’s first album, which comprises 11 songs, each of which, according to him, have a special meaning and is self-written.
Sharing his experience about working on the album, he says-
Over the last two years I felt a little bit of a burn-out setting in, just from working on films non-stop. I just felt I needed some time out for myself, to reconnect with other things, to look at where my life’s at – I wanted to channel what I was feeling, and put it out there, just to share with people. And I found that process very cathartic.
There are 11 songs in the album, that have all been written and sung by Farhan. The songs are steeped into the genres of Indian music, and western rock and pop as well. Farhan was inspired by the legends of both genres – including the likes of Kishore Kumar, Ravi Shankar, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, and David Bowie.
Farhan explains the album’s title, and why he chose to call it ‘Echoes’-
It’s about chapters in my life and voices in my head that have influenced the writing. All of us have our personal journeys through life, through love. We struggle at times to make sense of our emotions and of the world around us. So here I am, speaking as honestly as I can about my journey.
