The audio production team did a fantastic job improving the tracks and they can’t wait for people to listen to them. The album consists of 9 songs evoking the different experiences that A-Zal has felt in his life.
Atif said, “I consider this my best work to date and I’m working with a great team on releasing the song. I have received outstanding reactions from people in the industry and I can’t wait to share my voice and my story with the world. This album is all about my journey and is probably the best way to get to know me as an artist. Working on the album with this team, I realized there was a reason artists like Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber sounded so good. First, they are exceptional talents, but at the same time, they have a brilliant team behind their musical production. Every aspect of song production is so important and nothing can be rough around the edges. I was lucky to have such a team that elevated my album enormously.
A-Zal had composed, recorded and sung the soundtracks in New York, while production took place at Abbey Road Studios in London. Abbey Road Studios has a heritage of bands such as the Beatles and Queen recording at ARS. Currently, artists like Radiohead, Amy Winehouse, Ed Sheeran, Lady Gaga, Adele have made Abbey Road their creative home, producing countless landmark recordings.
For the live instrumentation, Atif worked with a guitarist in Italy, a mixing engineer in the USA and a pianist and drummer in the UK.
