Singer and music composer Azaan Sami Khan unveiled the artwork for his upcoming single Maa as a heartfelt tribute to his mother, the veteran actor Zeba Bakhtiar – but he hopes people will own and dedicate it to all motherly figures in their lives.
Sharing the digital artwork on Instagram to announce his tribute, the Ik Lamha singer wrote, “Thought this would be the best way to release the first artwork for the album. There’s a song on the album called Maa. I don’t think there’s much more to say. Maa for me is for my Amma, however, I hope it’s for yours too one day once it’s out.”
The artwork, which depicts his mother adorned in an ethereal white attire with flowers delicately placed in her hair, and the cosmic elements of the galaxy as a backdrop, offers a touching glimpse into Khan’s highly anticipated self-titled album, Azaan The Album.
According to a press release, Maa serves as a significant track among several others in Khan’s forthcoming album, scheduled for release later this year. Throughout the recording process of his second album, the singer has been actively sharing studio updates with his followers on social media.
Notably, Khan has provided glimpses into the making of about four songs. There’s Naadan Dil, and Manmarzi, a collaboration with producer Talal Qureshi. Khan even treated fans to a live session on the photosharing app where he offered a sneak peek of another song from the album, Humdum. Additionally, he documented a recording session in London, keeping his digital platforms abuzz with excitement.
On the work front, Khan has made a name for himself by composing original OSTs for critically acclaimed films such as Parey Hut Love and Superstar, along with popular drama serials like Kuch Ankahi and Ishq e Laa – which also marked his acting debut. Azaan, his upcoming highly anticipated album serves as his second offering following his debut album, Main Tera.
