Recorded with the help of Grammy award-winning producer Jeff Bova, “Tell Me” sonically encapsulates traditional instruments such as the tabla, gamelan, and tanpura with modern pop. Amirah’s lyrics calling for a united and peaceful world bring the coherent element to the whole, and her natural performing presence and confidence can be vividly felt throughout the song.
On her way to releasing a new album, Amirah has been receiving extremely positive press thanks to the release of her latest single, “Tell Me,” as well as for her previously released one, “You Are My Land.”
Cinematic in scope, with luscious live strings and modern pop drums, “Tell Me” is brilliant in many aspects and was originally composed in Malay, as Amirah explores faith, freedom, and the search for identity of a nation. Amirah raises many essential, spiritual and philosophical questions that align with her ultimate goal; help everyone realize that despite our differences, we have much more in common than what we might initially think.
The inspiring storyteller and lyrical healer is just beginning her journey, and after listening to “Tell Me,” we are very curious to finally hear Amirah’s upcoming album, scheduled for release in 2021.
