Ritviz and Karan Kanchan collaborate for new song ‘Khamoshi’, out on 9 July
Indian EDM star Ritviz has announced a new song ‘Khamoshi’ with Gully Gang’s Karan Kanchan. The track releases on Friday, 9th July with a music video. Ritviz had previously announced that he has 21 songs coming out in next 21 weeks as part of 2 collaborative albums, with Nucleya and Seedhe Maut each. The new track ‘Khamoshi’ takes the songs count to 22.
Ritviz shared that he and Karan had announced the song ‘Khamoshi’ in December 2020 itself. However, they ended up not releasing it since they felt something was missing in the song. Finally they’ve finished the track, and Ritviz took to Instagram to share the teaser for the song. He captioned it, “Ok I lied about 21 songs. THERE ARE 22. Khamoshi with @karankanchanmusic out this Friday”.
Karan Kanchan revealed the true inspiration behind their upcoming song was the silence amid the government imposed COVID-19 lockdown. He said the track was made during the COVID-19 lockdown when the entire world was dealing with the uncomfortable silence. He believes the silence is not always comforting since the buzzing sounds of existence seem to have almost vanished. Karan Kanchan appreciated Ritviz saying that he brought the Hindustani classical flair touch to the 80’s English pop soundtrack.
