Fresh from her crowd-pleasing set at Party at the Palace in Linlithgow earlier this month, hotly-tipped new singer Saraswati has announced the release of new single Ray Of Sunshine, which is due out next month. Listen below.
The track will be released on an EP that will feature two other tracks – Bad Habits and Sweet Little Bassline.
Both songs featured in the soundtrack to cult movie Brotherhood, also released this month. Quite a coup for an unknown singer-songwriter.
Inspired by the likes of Shakira, Destiny’s Child and Jennifer Lopez, Saraswati grew up listening to these artists and dreamed of a life that was a far cry from her humble beginnings in a Katmandu orphanage.
“I was thrilled to be invited to the premier of Brotherhood in London last week,” the singer. “Sitting there in the theatre surrounded by lots of great artist and actors and then to hear my songs on the big screen was just mind blowing and something I’ll never forget.
“I have been working hard doing so many little gigs up and down the country to get my music out there and I’m so happy with the response to the shows and my music.
“From playing small basement shows in Leeds, Glasgow and London to being asked to play Party at the Palace in Linlithgow recently, has been fantastic experience for me …what an incredible year so far!”
Saraswati’s new album is expected later in the year, and Ray Of Sunshine is available from Friday, 2 September from all major online retailers.
