Bappi Lahiri has revealed that he recently recorded two duets with Lady Gaga. The Indian singer, composer and producer recently broke the news while speaking to the Mumbai Mirror, where he opened up about the upcoming tracks. He didn't give many details away, but he did explain that Gaga sings both tracks in English while he sings in Hindi.
While no release date has been set yet, Lahiri said that he is now waiting for the release of the two tracks to be green lit, and he hopes they are released by the end of the year. He recently celebrated 50 years in the industry as a composer, and is famous for popularising the use of synthesised disco music in Indian cinema.
The news of this collaboration broke just days after Gaga tweeted 'Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavnatu', a Sanskrit mantra and Hindu prayer. It translates to "May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all".
It is unclear whether these tracks are intended for Gaga's upcoming sixth album or not, but it looks like new music is definitely on the way. Read an excerpt from the interview with Bappi Lahiri below.
Speaking to the Mumbai Mirror, he said, "Yes, two duets, with her singing in English and me in Hindi in my inimitable style. We are now waiting for the release to be greenlit, hopefully by the year-end."
