Anoushka Shankar has a new song out today! Listen below:Dear friends, I’m so happy to share a new song with you, OUT TODAY! mkx.lnk.to/ThoseWordsFP
‘Those Words’ features the amazing women Ayanna Witter-Johnson and Shilpa Rao on cello and vocals respectively. I’m very attached to this sweet, evocative song and hope you like it too.
I’m so grateful to each of the women who helped to birth it: along with Ayanna and Shilpa were my co-producer Alev Lenz, lyricist Shirin Anandita, engineer Izziiee Jewell, mastering engineer Heba Kadry and the beautiful painter Azeema Nur, who once again has created such beautiful art work for my song.. I didn’t quite manage an all female cast :) and need to thank my dear Matt Robertson for his stellar mixing as always!
