'It is song about me groping in darkness and screaming in pain every night. But it is also a song about me overcoming all the obstacles and finding my path back to the light'
Aurthohin frontman Saidus Salehin Khaled, popularly known as Bassbaba Sumon, will make his return tonight, on September 23, with his new single "Boyosh Holo Amar."
Sumon wrote and composed the song, which would feature guitarist Mahaan Fahim.
After a three-year battle with multiple health complications, including a severe spinal injury and a scary encounter with Covid-19, Sumon has finally returned to Bangladesh.
The singer is set to drop new singles in the coming months and complete Authohin's comeback track.
"A few words on "Boyosh Amar Holo." It has no bass solo, startling lead, or caricature of drums. What we have is Mahaan's beautiful acoustic guitar playing, and my ordinary lyrics," he wrote on Facebook.
"It is a song about me slowly getting older and being bedridden for nearly two years. It is song about me groping in darkness and screaming in pain every night. But more importantly, it is a song about me overcoming all the obstacles and find my path back to the light," Sumon added.
He was diagnosed with stomach cancer in 2011 and became cancer-free in 2013.
The music video for "Boyosh Amar Holo" was shot in Bandarban. It will be available on the singer's official Facebook page and YouTube channel from 10pm, Thursday, September 23.
