Speaking to Rolling Stone India, Armaan Malik said, “Being an Indian artist– because we’ve not seen a lot of representation on the global stage– I feel a kind of responsibility. This is not something that’s happened before, this is something that’s so new for India and Indian musicians. It’s beautiful how artists from different countries are so deep-rooted in their cultures but come together to do something which–even though it’s different– is still very much them.”
‘Echo’ drops on May 21, 2021.
