Talking about his latest collab with Sonu, KSHMR said, “Underwater has a really beautiful story to it. When my friend from India, Aayushman Sinha met me in Amsterdam he asked me to find out my grandfather’s favourite singer. My grandfather’s answer was Sonu Nigam. It so happened that Aayushman knew him and arranged a meeting in Sonu’s Karjat farmhouse before we proceeded to Sunburn Pune. This is when the idea of a collaboration cropped up. As destiny would have it, we caught up in the studio in August 2017 in Los Angeles and decided to work on a track that I had written 2 years ago. We finished the entire track in less than a day! This song is special, not only because it represents the start of my career as KSHMR but it is also a gift to my grandfather who has been so instrumental in both my personal and musical journey.”
Elated with the release of Underwater, Sonu too spoke about the collab with KSHMR and said, “Working with Niles has been such an enjoyable and effortless journey. I have always wanted to explore a collaboration with an international artist who imbibes homogenous sensibilities into his music and I found a perfect fit with Niles. And Niles is also blessed with a heart of gold that makes working with him a blissful experience. Looking forward to many more collaborations with him.”
KSHMR is also gearing up for his maiden tour in India, which is also his homeland, this year. The tour begins in New Delhi and the famous performer will make stops at Chennai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and Mumbai.
