Diljit Dosanjh set to return alongside Tru Skool for 'Back To Basics'

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 4.75 (2 Votes)

International Punjabi superstar Diljit Dosanjh recently announced via his Facebook account that he will be returning with a brand new album. Titled 'Back To Basics' - the album is set to be produced by highly acclaimed Tru Skool. 'Back To Basics' will be Diljit Dosanjh's first full album since 'The Next Level' - which released in Autumn 2009.

Diljit has been no stranger to controversy of late. His last album 'Urban Pendu' was scrapped for release, among criticism from fans that his style had become too raunchy and explicit alongside Honey Singh. Diljit recently released his dharmik album in April earlier this year, titled 'Sikh'.

More recently Diljit has found huge success as an actor, with moves such as 'Jihne Mera Dil Luteya' and the huge sucess of 'Jatt and Juliet'.

'Back To Basics' is pencilled in for a worldwide September/October 2012 release.

What do you think about his new collaboration with Tru Skool?

Quoting RedNotch:
He needs to release Urban [censored]du, if not in India, at least in US/UK. Honey Singhs production is quality, it'll be a waste, not to mention bad business sense not to release it, especially after the success of International Villager


Im guessing the reason he didnt release it was due to the topics covered in the songs which he had said he would not be singing about again. It might make business sense but for his own safety i think he'd be better off not releasing it. Last thing i heard was that Honey Singh got beaten up at one of his concerts in punjab by some local lads, i dont think Diljit would want the same thing hap[censored]in g to him!!!

Quoting [censored]MusicLover:
For Those who don't know, Diljit is ready with two music albums, 'Back To Basics' (Music [censored]) themed on Punjabi culture mixed with contemporary beats, and 'Temptation' (Music May Be Honey Singh ? ) which is an urban sound.
He's ready to serve both categories, who like [censored] Folk, they will get what they want in Back To Basics along collabo with amazingly talented [censored]. And for people who like more modern music (Indian Market) He has another album may be with Honey Singh doing the music, But it's not conformed yet if it's gonna be produced by Honey Singh or Someone else!
Can't Wait for both.. Honey Singh is huge in India.. Haters Gonna Hate.

If this will be a back to basics album, I expect something more like his Over Exposure/Smile/ Aho ni Aho album (name changed de[censored]din g where it was released) - with songs like Nachdian, Mohrni and Malkee Keema - of course if he does that then everyone will be complaining that Diljit is just a one trick pony doing what he was doing about 5 years ago!!

He needs to find the mix between keeping it modern but also holding on to the traditional sound that he is best at. I think he is best of working with people like Twinbeats or Gupsy Aujla for that.

Good for Tru Skool...gets him noticed in India. Good for bhangra music with Tru Skool bringing back raw folk into mainstream.

BUT lets not forget the Daljit and Honey Singh fiasco, yes he did apologise and then tried to cover himself by releasing a dharmic style album (which was good)...but then he makes movies where he always plays an uneducated 'Jatt' boy from the pind. He portrays singhs/ sikhs as idiots and the jokers/ 'the joke' which is the exact same as Bollywood.

The guy does/ says anything to get money and fame...this is just another one of his business plans.

Diljit is average
As for [censored] I expect a series of songs that sound like JKs album.

I still feel he should (also) release urban [censored]du. Forget the lyrics! I'm pretty sure there are some heavy tunes on it.
