British star Arjun is a brand new signing to Island, and he’s just released his debut single, ‘Alone’, a collaboration with Canadian Punjabi singer The PropheC.
With an explosive fusion of his strong Urban and Asian influences, ‘Alone’ brings Arjun together with The PropheC, one of North America’s stand out Punjabi music talents. The collaboration sets up ‘Alone’ to be one of the UK’s most exciting Asian music releases in years, leading to Arjun’s debut album release ‘Closer To Home’.
Since signing to Island via their Dcypha Productions imprint, Arjun has been developing a unique, contemporary sound true to his mixed musical influences and South Asian heritage. The first teaser of this new body of work, ‘Alone’ combines discernible R&B, Hip Hop & trap influences, with a strong concurrent Punjabi hook and verse from The PropheC, who also produced the song.
Arjun says: “Signing with Island last year was one of the proudest moments in my career so far. Having spent the last few months working with some amazing producers alongside Sway and Dcypha Productions we have put together my debut album ‘Closer To Home’, which brings together the best of the Urban and Asian influences that have featured in my sound so far. “Alone” is the first teaser from my album, and working with The PropheC on the forthcoming single was a great experience. I’m looking forward to sharing even more music in the coming months.”
