As we get closer to the end of 2017, the amount of new releases tends to dip as many are saved for next year. However, I have just decided to write an almost last minute New Music Monday, for a song that has recently caught my attention, and has stayed in my mind even though it has been a month since it released. The song in question is popular Bollywood singer Darshan Raval‘s latest single Tera Zikr.
It feels like absolutely ages, since I have written a New Music Monday post, but thankfully, there is one this week featuring the wonderful new rendition from SANAM Jaane Woh Kaise (Log Thay Jinke Pyar Ko Pyar Mila).
This classic song which is originally from the Bollywood film Pyaasa (1957) is extremely close to lead singer Sanam Puri and SANAM collectively; and from the video, it is clear that the band have taken extra efforts in executing their rendition of the song. Set in a seemingly old style house, the video sees bass guitarist Venky S playing the double-bass (instead of his guitar) Sanam Puri at the grand piano, and both Samar and Keshav with their respective instruments.
This week’s new Music Monday, features the latest release from my favourite Indie band, the fantastic four: SANAM. They have released one of their original compositions called Itni Door (pronounced as dur).
This latest release, from the band further enforces their status as a “boy band” (as they would be called in the West) with heaps of Musical talent, and the song accompanying video reflects this vibe too. The boys are seen in their most loved romantic avatar in the video, as Itni Door is a heartbreak song, providing all the right kind of emotions that one feels when listening to a SANAM original! I personally enjoyed the video, and like the song a lot too. It is wonderful to see the band releasing their own material while taking breaks from their renditions.
Enjoy their latest release Itni Door below, and let me know if you enjoyed this #SANAMOriginal composition too!

This weeks new Music Monday releases, are both from artist Rishabh Srivastava. I have shared Rishabh’s songs at the blog before, and it is always a pleasure for me to share his latest releases.
The first release is the single Aadat Nahin Hai Tum Bin with Zee Music Company. Zee Music had initially released the female version of this single with Jyotica Tangri on the vocals, and now they have released Rishabh’s version which is a treat to the ears! The song has a strong melody with meaningful lyrics which make it a treat to listen to.

I know my blog has been a bit quiet on the new Music Monday front, and that is thanks to all of the new and good Music, releasing all at once! It seems as though we are officially now in Autumn, we have a slew of new releases in the Western Music scene; that too, from 3 of my favourite artists!
The latest releases which have grabbed my attention are:
Starlight – Emeli Sande (from her upcoming album Starlight)
Son of Solomon – The Corrs (from their upcoming album Jupiter calling)
Swingin’ With My Eyes Closed – Shania Twain (the second single from her just released album Now)
This weeks new Music Monday release is the latest single from the fantastic four SANAM! Regular readers, will know that I always feature new releases from India’s popular band SANAM here at the blog.
Their latest release is what they call a #SANAMrendition and is their take on the retro classic Dil Kya Kare from the Bollywood film Julie. The video shows highlights from the bands recent concerts, including Amsterdam which is also where the majority of the video has been shot. The video also gives major boy band vibes, as we get to see behind the scene clips and masti of the fabulous four! These parts of the video remind me of Westlife’s video When You’re Looking Like That.
This weeks new Music Monday release, is a patriotic one from the band SANAM. The song Shama Hai Jali is an original release, and is in aid of India’s independence day. The song is aiming to give the message of hope for a better country.
The video has been shot in a different style, as compared to previous videos from the band, and we are also seeing them without their musical instruments this time. While watching the video, you can clearly tell just how passionate the boys are about their country, and the seriousness reflects in the composition of the song too, which I feel is one of their best original compositions so far. They have shown people from all backgrounds whilst keeping the air of patriotism strong. It is also a nice touch to see the Hindi-English subtitles that have been added to the video, as this may help the song reach a wider audience.
Check out the video below and let me know if the song touched you too!

This week, I am sharing the Music video of the brand new single Caught in the Middle by Anastacia. Anastacia is one of my all-time favourite female artists, and this new single is taken from her forthcoming album Evolution.
Her last album was Resurrection which released in 2015. Her new song Caught in the Middle, is not your typical Anastacia song, yet it has a catchy hookline and melody, and presents the strength of her powerful vocals. The video has a mysterious/fantasy vibe to it, and it flows with the song very well. I love Anastacia’s outfits in it, and it is also really cool to see her riding a horse!
The song talks about a difficult point in a relationship. I know it will definitely become a favourite of mine, and I cannot wait to listen to the full album of Evolution. Check out the video of Caught in the Middle below and do share your thoughts about the track!
Caught in the Middle – Anastacia
This weeks new Music Monday post features one of my all-time favourite female artists Shania Twain. I do love a bit of country Music, and luckily for me, Shania is back with her brand new album aptly titled Now.
She recently released a track from the album which is called Life’s about to get Good. The song is a feel good tune with a catchy hookline, happy beats and motivational lyrics. The song primarily talks about moving on after a heartbreak/broken relationship. The video reflects the songs lyrics in a happier light, as we see a team of people aiming to give Shania a makeover in preparation for the good that is about to come her way.
The song has definitely become a new favourite of mine, and I can’t wait to listen to the rest of the album when it releases!
Check out the video below and let me know what you think about this weeks new Music Monday!

This week my new Music Monday choice, is the SANAM version of the Bollywood classic Neele Neele Ambar Par. The song is originally from the Bollywood film Kalakaar, and has a wonderful combination of melody, lyrics and guitar rifts.
The band SANAM, have done a tremendous job with the song, giving it a modern uplift, whilst keeping its melody stronger than ever. I did have high hopes for them focusing a bit more on the guitar portions of the song, but overall they have done a fine job, with Sanam Puri sounding like this song was specifically created for him to sing.
Check out their video below, which was filmed during their recent tour in Suriname.
