The versatile singer Papon who has given us various hit songs from Bollywood movies like Dum Maro Dum and Dum Laga Ke Haisha releases a new pop album, The Story Now. The singer likes to experiment with different genres and is know to effortlessly adapt his vocals to the music.
Papon has released a new album on Saavn. With The Story Now, Papon has become Artist-in-Residence for Saavn with Raghu Dixit joining the ranks. The Artist-in-Residence program of the streaming giant aims to bring non-film Indian music and musicians to the forefront once again and plans to give them global exposure.
The latest album by Papon comes with four tracks which can be said to fit in his favorite folktronica genre or fusion compositions. The first song is available to stream for free and the remaining three need Pro subscription.
The album opens with Loving a Dream that feels like a fusion of Raggae and Rock. The reggae rhythm in the intro immediately get you swinging, if you are a reggae fan. But the song soon changes the mood with Rock music tune. The background reggae seems a bit off initially. But you can get used to this eclectic song if you don’t mind switching between genres and end with some intense strings.
