Darshan Raval says lockdown gave him time to cut an album

Singer Darshan Raval has grown a lot as an artiste since his participation in a reality show back in 2014. After singing for multiple Bollywood films and singles, he is now ready to treat his fans with his debut album.

Darshan became the audience favourite when he participated in "India's Raw Star". He went on to sing for films like "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", "Teraa Surroor", "Loveyatri" and "Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga". He has been active in the independent music space, too.

"Working on one single song is different and working on one entire album, an entire journey, an entire story, is very different. Every artise dreams of doing an album. I never got the time to work on so many songs together. Album needs a lot of time, a lot of dedication and a lot of hardwork. Not only me, the entire team has to do that," Darshan told IANS.

Lack of time was keeping him away from working on an album, and the lockdown gave him the opportunity.

"I wanted to do an album since the last five years, but I think this was the time I could achieve this dream," he said.

He had made a few songs during lockdown.

"It has been quite a journey. 'Judaiyaan' is about separation and right now, we are seperated from everyone and everybody we love and everything we love and love to do. So that was the inspiration behind 'Judaiyaan'," Darshan explained about the title song of his upcoming album.

Darshan has recorded the song with Shreya Ghosal.

"When I made the first song 'Judaiyaan', the title song, and the first line was composed, I thought of Shreya Ghosal. I thought that if she would sing the song, it would become more beautiful. I'm very happy she loved the song and she sung it with all her heart," he said about the newly released track.    - IANS
