Mumbai, 28th August 2023: After the success of the previous release ‘Sahiba’, Ahmad Shaad has released his next music video called ‘Abr’. Abr weaves a tale of exquisite yearning, a delicate tapestry of both anguish and splendour. It paints metaphorical strokes, casting the young man as Earth and the maiden as Sky. Earth’s unyielding longing to unite with Sky portrays its uniqueness and allure. Despite Sky’s visibility, it remains an elusive enigma, perpetually distant from Earth’s grasp. In this unfulfilled union, longing persists, etching its mark upon Earth’s very core.
Watch the song here:
Such is the essence of this song, a reflection of a profound ache, a fusion of poignant discord and harmonious beauty. It stands as a poetic allegory, an exploration of longing that resonates with the celestial dance of Earth and Sky. Speaking about the track Shaad says “Longing to embrace the beloved holds a mirror to the yearning for the divine. Just as the saying goes, “True beauty resides not merely in what is observed and recalled, but in what is profoundly sensed and eternally cherished.” Longing is the vessel ferrying love to its zenith, a sentiment beyond words, a privilege of the chosen few.
