If you were thinking Atif Aslam will take a break after his project with Sonic Peace Makers , or probably the superstar singer will be diverted more towards acting & movie industry after his first movie release. Then You were thinking totally wrong!
The latest news we have is, Atif Aslam is looking so far….! So far that he might end up collaborating with the World’s renown and great musicians like John Mayer, Cold Play and Jimmy Page. Shocked ?
*say it again please*
Oh yeah, I am reporting here with my full senses and you are reading it RIGHT. Atif Aslam, who was touring the United States earlier this month, revealed this in a latest interview:
"Whenever I’m in the US, I keep aside a week to work only on my
collaborations with artistes. Be it raising money or tying up with
musicians, I’m doing everything on my own, We are planning to
collaborate with Mayer, Coldplay and Jimmy Page, but nothing is
Atif , who has already worked with ex members of American Band Guns N’ Roses – Slash, Gilby Clarke and Chris Pitmal – for an upcoming album "The Dreamer Awakes", further told in the interview that with this initiative he is planning to bring Pakistani singers — including Pakistani Sufi singers — and American artistes together for musical collaborations,”
Atif Aslam, who himself seems quite optimistic about this venture
said very humbly, "I’m keeping my fingers crossed because, after all,
they are busy people”. Upon asking him again whether is it likely to
happen? Atif replied with, "We will keep everyone informed about it,”.
So folks, lets start another countdown as our Pakistani star will
hopefully soon rise along with American counterparts. If this happens,
Atif Aslam will become the biggest star, after Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, to
collaborate with World’s best musicians. Our all best wishes with him !
