Coke Studio’s Ali Sethi and Shae Gill, along with Pasoori collaborators Abdullah Siddiqui and Maanu, have unveiled a new single. If Pasoori appeared on Ms. Marvel and at Coachella, then this one could (pardon the pun) go absolutely anywhere.
This time, four legends in the industry are teaming up to bring listeners a unique blend of classical and pop sounds. On Friday, April 28, the song titled Left Right will be released, featuring the stellar collaboration of Sethi & Gill, Maanu, and Siddiqui.
The artists made the initial announcement of their upcoming song by sharing the first poster on Instagram. Right, Left. Due out this Friday, April 28th. They captioned the photo, “Pre-save link in bio,” and tagged each other.
The artwork depicts the four legends dressed to the nines in a 1970s motif and carrying musical instruments that they are presumably playing in the song; the photo appears burnt, aged, and blurry (10/10 for the old-school aesthetic). Gill, dressed in a banarsi saree, sits gracefully in the corner to the left, while Maanu and Siddiqui, carrying a harmonium and a baby sitar, look directly into the camera.
Fans’ anticipation was only heightened when the four of them posted stunning individual pictures from their music video. The loosely printed shirts, pajama-like attire, giant glasses without lenses like your grandfather would have worn, and khaki hats take you back in time.
What do you mean, Abdullah and Maanu? An admirer reacted with “Woohoo.” Someone else said that they can’t wait for “something big to surprise them already.”
Siddiqui was the producer for Gill and Sethi’s international smash Pasoori, but that wasn’t the end of their work together. For his most recent track, Ghazab Kiya, Sethi collaborated with the Go producer.
