Those Words

January 10th, 2020

Anoushka Shankar announces the release of her new single Those Words, featuring British composer, singer and cellist Ayanna Witter-Johnson and renowned Indian singer Shilpa Rao. The track is taken from her upcoming EP, Love Letters, out on Mercury KX on 7th February.

‘Those Words’ is based on an original poem written by Anoushka and Ayanna, which then inspired respected director and writer Shirin Anandita to write lyrics to the track in Punjabi. The song was co-produced by Anoushka Shankar and Alev Lenz.

“Bright Eyes” / “In This Mouth”

November 29th, 2019


A double release this month sees Anoushka debuting two singles: Bright Eyes and In This Mouth, both featuring her close friend the wonderful singer Alev Lenz. The pair initially worked together on the title song from Anoushka’s album Land of Gold, which was written in response to the refugee crisis.

In her own words, “Bright Eyes was written at a very raw and painful time in my life. Musically, I love how on one level it’s a straightforward love song, but the instrumentation belies the form and involves sitar and ghatam along with piano and upright bass.

She describes In This Mouth as “a song very close to my heart. It’s a love letter, a poem, a beckoning, a prayer. In the middle of the song Alev and I move away from her lead vocal rhythm and go into a Vedic chant-style melodic refrain, turning earthly desire into something exalted and holy.”
