JioSaavn releases classic U2 songs reimagined by Indian musicians
The streaming company’s in-house label, Artist Originals (AO), collaborated with four Indian artistes.
Four popular Indian artistes - Lost Stories, OX7GEN, Karsh Kale and Amaal Mallik - have worked on one of the greatest bands’, U2’s classic tracks.
In their own signature styles, the musicians have given an Indian touch to the songs: Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way, You’re The Best Thing About Me, Pride, and Beautiful Day.
Duo Lost Stories said, “We grew up listening to U2 as has our entire generation. To have been presented with this opportunity to officially remix one of the band’s tracks is a dream come true. We stuck by our signature Lost Stories style and lent the track an Indian sound that complimented the exemplary U2 sound.”
The reprises and remixes follow last month’s release of Ahimsa - a new track from U2 and award-winning composer AR Rahman - and are a part of JioSaavn’s initiative to celebrate the band’s first show in India, in Mumbai on December 15th.
The reimagined songs are:
Beautiful Day - Amaal Mallik Hindi Reprise
Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way - Lost Stories Remix
You’re The Best Thing About Me - OX7GEN Remix
Pride - Karsh Kale 100 Voices Mix
