Farhan Akhtar is all set to release his first-ever English album Echoes on January 25, 2019. The versatile writer-actor-director-singer has been working on it for the past 15 months and has penned the lyrics, too. What started off as mere thoughts that he scribbled on a page has now evolved into an 11-song album, which has been recorded in Milan and produced by Grammy winner Tommaso Colliva. The first single titled Rearview Mirror released yesterday.
Farhan is the singer, lyricist and has also produced the album
Rearview Mirror is an infectious blend of soft rock orchestration and delicate melodies tinged with subtle psychedelia. Flowing seamlessly through punchy verses and choruses that swell effortlessly into euphoric crescendos, the track is a tactful assessment of introspection amid delicately crafted musicianship.
