Anoop Desai To Release First Single in March

Shortly after the American Idols Live tour wrapped up last fall, Season 8 finalist Anoop Desai moved to Los Angeles in the hopes of getting signed to a label and to work on his debut album.

USA Today’s Idol Tracker blog reports Desai’s debut single will be released in March, followed by a complete album, titled All is Fair, later this spring.

While Desai presented himself as an R&B artist on the show, he says that the album will have more of a pop feel along with a strong “Indian element.”

He says:

“That’s something I’ve been experimenting with a lot in my music — sort of bringing pop, R&B and Hindi music into one vein.

“Both of the cultures I consider myself to be a part of — the South and India — have rich musical traditions, rich food traditions, rich literary traditions. It’s something that has been really nice for me, because I can draw from those rich traditions and feel part of them at the same time.”
