Singer-song­writer Har­rdy Sandhu, who re­cently told us that he took time to re­lease his lat­est sin­gle, Kya Baat Ay, fol­low­ing the suc­cess of Naah (launched ear­lier this year), be­lieves in be­ing a per­fec­tion­ist when re­leas­ing mu­sic. The 32-yearold says he does not be­lieve in re­leas­ing mu­sic in a hurry, as he feels it af­fects the mu­sic.

“There are two ap­proaches, when re­leas­ing mu­sic. Some peo­ple don’t like to have a gap be­tween two sin­gles and like to re­lease it one af­ter the other. But, that, I feel, com­pro­mises your prod­uct. Then there’s the other cat­e­gory, where mu­si­cians feel the prod­uct should be great, and don’t bother about how much time it takes to make that one song,” says the singer, known for sin­gles such as Soch, Naah and Yaarr Ni Milyaa .

“Of course there’s pres­sure from fans, and other places to keep mak­ing mu­sic. One deals with that. I be­long to the sec­ond cat­e­gory. I look at things very minutely. I try to find per­fec­tion in ev­ery­thing. Usme doob jata hun main. (laughs). And some­times, I’ll change the line, some­times I’ll change the melody. I mean, the first and last draft of my songs are never the same. Some­times, peo­ple tell me that I need to let go, and not keep on mak­ing changes with the song,” he laughs.

An­other as­pect Har­rdy thinks about, a lot, is the mu­sic videos. The singer feels mu­sic is now “con­sumed vis­ually”, and mu­sic videos are es­sen­tial in the over­all pack­ag­ing of the en­tire song. “It has be­come a very im­por­tant as­pect of mu­sic these days. Peo­ple don’t lis­ten to mu­sic as much as they now con­sume it vis­ually. So, one has to think about the right kind of video for their song,” he adds.
