Raghav Releases New Album, "The Phoenix"

The long wait is finally over! Raghav’s new album has been released!

After a 3 year gap, Raghav has finally put out another album, but this time it’s in his home country, Canada! The Phoenix is now out in stores across Canada as well as on iTunes Canada! For fans outside of Canada you can still order your copy from Maple Music.

With producers like Labrinth, Jim Beanz & Mushtaq on the album, it has quite a diversity of songs. You can find songs that’ll get you dancing, club bangers, ballads…basically something for everyone!

Although there’s no fusion between Hindi and English like he’s had in his previous albums Storyteller and Identity, you will still recognize a hint of Indian vocals in some of the tracks. He’s saving the Hindi songs for Bollywood!

This 11-track album has a song for every mood and every situation! A few of the songs on it have already been nominated for awards in Canada. So Much ft fellow Canadian Kardinal Offishall had been nominated for Juno Awards in 2011, 3 Canadian Radio Music Awards (CRMAs), and an Indie AwardFire has been nominated for the 2012 CRMA’s, two 2012 Sirius XM Indie Awards, single of the year, and got certified Gold in Canada with over 50,000 downloads and has spun on Canadian radios over 30,000 times! Impressive, eh?

When Cordova Bay Records asked Raghav what this album meant to him, he had the following to say:

“It is a truly momentous day for me to have finally reached the goal of putting out an album in Canada. I am so fiercely proud of my first commercial release in my home country. For years as I had numerous single and album launches worldwide I would envision the day when I could “come back home” with my music. I’ve put all my creative energy into making this album. Hope you love it Canada.”

I’m sure Canada and fans all around the world will! Be sure to grab your copy of The Phoenix in stores near you, from  iTunes Canada, or order your copy online from Maple Music.
