Singer Ananya Birla, who will release her debut EP "Fingerprint" on Friday, says with time she has realised that life is not all about competition but about enjoying one's journey.
The EP, which has a blend of pop, electro and R&B showcasing the singer's versatility, is being released via Universal Music Group and Island Records UK. It includes "Blackout", featuring Nigeria's leading music stars Vector and WurlD, as well as "All Night Long", "Disappear" and "Love Suicide".
For Ananya, 24, these are a deeply personal collection of songs.
"This EP is really authentic to me and my own experiences. It's mostly about love – the good and the bad. I wanted to cover the holistic journey, from falling in love to heartbreak to reconciliation.
"It took me a while to realize that life isn't all about competing to a finish line – something which I've often struggled to do. It's about enjoying every step of the journey," she said in a statement.
Ananya's first single came out in 2016.
On her journey, Devraj Sanyal, Managing Director and CEO of Universal Music Group and EMI Music, India and South Asia, said: "After a solid build up period and 7 singles later… we finally think we are ready for her to take on the world." [IANS]
