Mumbai, January 11th, 2021: Singer-songwriter Nikhil D’Souza gets contemplative, kicking off the new year with the release of his new single ‘Woh Raat’, today. This new track is about how we so often use words casually, and how some are loaded with feelings and emotions, all affecting relationships in more ways than one.
Elaborating further on his new single, Nikhil D’souza said, “Woh Raat is about reminding ourselves that even a casual goodbye can prove to be a point of no return. Sometimes it helps us pause and sort things out, but every once in a while it gets too late. We need to be more grateful and hold on to what we know is important to us. We also need to be more responsible for our words, said or unsaid.”
Nikhil has had a busy last year with the release of two EP’s and the most recent being a collaboration with Sony Music for their single, ‘Tum Aur Main’ with singer Nikitaa. His last EP ‘Waqt’ was ranked #1 by Rolling Stone India as best ever EP for 2020.
