Neha Bhasin loves to ex­per­i­ment with her style of mu­sic, and is not afraid of tak­ing risks or go­ing the ex­tra mile to give her fans “some­thing new” to lis­ten to. Her in­de­pen­dent sin­gles so far saw her do­ing ev­ery­thing, right from the com­po­si­tion to the lyrics. But, her lat­est sin­gle Beli­haziyan, which was re­leased on Tues­day, a song talk­ing about the heart­break in a re­la­tion­ship, only uses her vo­cal prow­ess.

“I wanted to do some­thing dif­fer­ent, and not nec­es­sar­ily get into all the de­tails of it. When this song came — it was a beau­ti­fully worded song, uses beau­ti­ful Urdu words — I im­me­di­ately wanted to sing it,” says Neha, who is known for her Bol­ly­wood songs such as Jag Ghoomeya (Sul­tan, 2016) and Kuch Khaas (Fash­ion, 2008).

The 34-year-old singer adds, “The song is about how one part­ner can mer­ci­lessly just leave the other one heart­bro­ken, and there is no re­gard. It is about that pain. Fi­nally, a song which is not in­spired by my past ex­pe­ri­ences (laughs).”

“But jokes apart, a lot of peo­ple can re­late to the pain. I hope it strikes a chord with the peo­ple, and they like it, like they have liked all of my pre­vi­ous songs,” she says.

Although Neha loves the con­cept of al­bums, she feels they have few tak­ers. “I love the con­cept of al­bums, and I love own­ing al­bums. But, no one wants to lis­ten to al­bums any­more, and no one wants to work on them any­more. Only a few sin­gles off an al­bum re­ally work, and the rest of the songs feel like such a waste. The best thing right now to do is, re­lease sin­gles, and then com­pile them al­to­gether in an al­bum,” she says.
