TAKEN FROM FORTHCOMING DEBUT ALBUM ECHOES OUT APRIL 12TH
“…a pensive, taut piece of songwriting, quietly assured in its intelligent lyricism and evocative arrangement.” – Clash
Acclaimed Indian actor Farhan has shared the video for his new single, ‘Seagull’, the latest track to be taken from his upcoming debut album Echoes, out April 12th.
Featuring footage of Farhan in the studio intercut with spacious and atmospheric shots of vast sea, the video is a touching interpretation of the sentiment of the track, conjuring a sense of freedom and liberation. Originally written as a poem 25 years ago, the song deals with the aftermath of a relationship that had reached a premature end.
The new single follows the release of tender album track ‘Why Couldn’t It Be Me’ and the debut single ‘Rearview Mirror’, which channels the timelessness of early Bowie.
Echoes is the story of Farhan’s life, a set of classic-sounding, self-written songs that reflect a childhood steeped in the greats of both Indian music and of western rock and pop. Witten by Farhan and recorded in Milan, the rich, melodic album was produced by Grammy-winning producer Tommaso Colliva (Franz Ferdinand, Jesus and Mary Chain, Muse).
Farhan recently featured in the ‘Global Feminism’ short film made by Annie Lennox to celebrate International Women’s Day, seeking to help people appreciate and understand the full extent of the Global challenges faced by women and girls – and how the term ‘Global Feminism’ is an inclusive term that everyone can use and endorse.
