18 MARCH 2022 (TORONTO, ON) -  In the wake of a tidal wave of praise, including two Grammy® Nominations for Best New Artist and Best Global Music Performance for last year’s Vulture Prince, Arooj Aftab announces Vulture Prince (Deluxe Edition), slated for physical release on June 24th via Verve/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company, including a new double LP pressing. Today, Aftab shares intimate lead single “Udhero Na,” featuring Anoushka Shankar.

 

“Udhero Na” (translation: “please undo”) updates one of Aftab’s works with the electrifying sound of Shankar’s sitar and Maeve Gilchrist’s harp, adding a new layer of longing. Unable to relieve herself of an infatuation, Aftab instead pleads with her beloved to release her from these feelings. The vocals, soft in delivery but heavy in their meaning, convey the conflicting emotions at play here.

 

Aftab shared these feelings on the track: “‘Udhero Na’ has been one of my dearest songs, written in 2005 and never released, played live on and off over the years. I've always held it close to my heart and am so happy to release it finally! It describes a very unique and fleeting emotional moment, a super underrated feeling. When the thought of someone from a very old and ‘passed’ relationship just pops into your head as you go about your present day to day.”
