Farhan Akhtar has released ‘Why Couldn’t It Be Me’, the latest track from his much-awaited debut album Echoes, which will be out on 22nd February 2019.
Farhan’s album Echoes features a summary of Farhan’s life experiences. Among other tracks, ‘Why Couldn’t It Be Me’ is a powerful and emotion-filled track and is available to download today on all streaming platforms.
The album is an eclectic musical mix and lyrically focused on love and relationships. The largely acoustic ‘Why Couldn’t It Be Me’ brings an extra dimension to Farhan’s work and has been released during the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence – an international campaign to challenge violence against women and girls.
A key track on the album, it’s also the only song that “isn’t looking inward but it’s about an external event” and is a song written to heighten awareness of the need to tackle violence.
Year’s 2014 massacre in Peshawar left the world in deep sorrow and had shaken everyone with grief. Way back then Farhan had decided on dedicating a track to the innocent souls who lost their lives in the tragic incident of massive killing.
