Singer, songwriter and producer Abdullah Siddiqui released his fourth album, dead Beat poets: side B, on Sunday.
According to the 20-year old singer, the new album is more “sonically explorative” than the previous dead Beat poets released in January this year. The songs in the albums have been written from a place of personal “honesty and earnestness,” Siddiqui wrote in an Instagram post.
Regarding the album’s diverse sound and content that ranges from rock to orchestral to an “audio piece constructed mostly of foley,” Siddiqui said that the “inconsistency was completely honest” to his circumstances. “I made this album in a time when my professional life was the best it’s ever been and my personal life was collapsing altogether. So I allowed myself to translate that messiness into sound, and to let go of some of the meticulousness that’s defined my work in the past,” he wrote on instagram.
In the same post, he also announced the release of his single Surface with musician Talha Anjum.
In 2019, the young artist landed on the Forbes Under 30 under 30 Asia List as Pakistan’s electro-pop prodigy. After his rise to fame with the Nescafe Basement original ‘Resistance,’ he released the hit single ‘Kingdom’ that became the official anthem for the Peshawar Zalmi team during the sixth Pakistan Super League.
Siddiqui is also the music producer behind Natasha Noorani’s popular song ‘Choro’ and the recent Meesha Shafi song ‘Hot Mango Chutney Sauce.’
