“ANOTHER BLOCKBUSTER ALBUM FROM GURDAS MAAN”
After his sell out 2007 UK tour where over 30,000 fans came to see him, the living legend as he is so widely known, Gurdas Maan is set to rock the UK once again with his latest blockbuster album scheduled to release in January 2008.
The album titled “Boot Polishan” concentrates on real life issues with which all can relate, something which Gurdas Maan has a specialty for and something which is surely missing from the Punjabi music industry.
With a library of great hits under his belt, Gurdas Maan is recognised as one of the greatest Punjabi singers of all time. His input has been phenomenal since the day of his establishment nearly 30 years ago and even to date, he has kept his consistency and quality to a standard that only he can raise.
His new album comes with an 18 page full colour inlay containing English translations for each song and even though Gurdas Maan’s listnership ranges from the young to the old, this translation will prove essential for many second and third generation UK Punjabi’s to understand the content of Gurdas Maan’s meaningful songs.
“Boot Polishan” contains eight mind blowing tracks:
1. Boot Polishan
4. Dillan De Jaani (Tribute to our beloved Manoj Punj)
5. Taare Gawah Ne
6. Sakhiye Saheliye
8. Bhagat Singh
The album contains several hit tracks that will be added to the long list of Gurdas Maan’s classics. “Challie”, is an off shoot to the master piece “Challa” and “Sakhiye Saheliyen” is a beautiful love song that falls into the league of classic love songs such as “Peer Tere Jaandi”.
Also included is a powerful patriotic track titled Bhagat Singh and Dillan De Jaani dedicated to the late Manoj Punj. Boot Polishan is again a meaningful hard hitting track which qualifies as an all time classic.
Gurdas Maan has chosen UK Box Office to solely publish and distribute the album in the UK and Europe, based on the unprecedented success achieved while working in association with the newly established UK Box Office directors Ashok and Jagjit Suman during the 2005 and 2007 UK and European tours. They will also continue to act as official promoters for Gurdas Maan for the 2009 tours.Ashok Suman said, ‘The company originally started out solely specialising in event management, however diversifying into the distribution and publishing of Mr Maan’s album will illustrate our company’s’ innovative aspect. Our solid partnership with Mr Maan has been created by the sheer success of our ventures to date. We are very pleased to be managing Mr Maan in the UK for both his concerts and album. Our long term aims are to bring Punjabi music alive and we feel this album will be a very strong starting point”.UK BOX OFFICE is also giving away, a fantastic opportunity for 2 lucky winners to win tickets to see Gurdas Maan perform live in sunny California in April 2008 as part of his forthcoming USA tour.
The prize includes a fully inclusive holiday, with flights and accommodation.
Further to this, 10 runners up will win VIP tickets to Gurdas Maan’s UK Tour in April 2009 at either Wembley Arena or NEC Arena.
