The album’s first song, Humsafar, written and produce by Kiani herself. The poetry for Humsafar written by her mother, Khawar Kiani, and musical arrangements by Hassan Badshah. It explores a dreamlike obsession for soulmates.
The music video shot by ace director Abdullah Haris in the beautiful hill station of Murree and explores the region’s gorgeous nature. Kiani’s clothing created by Yousuf Bashir Qureshi, a pioneer of utilitarian avant-garde fashion. The outfit, like every song on the album, has its own storey to tell; it is meticulously crafted, self-aware, protective, and responsible, and it is the ideal complement to the raw connection that VASL’s ballads strive to achieve.
VASL explores Kiani’s unequalled range and archives her roots under one CD, ranging from pop-rock successes to folk classics. In 2021, the Tamgha-e-Imtiaz winner made her acting debut in Momina Duraid’s Raqeeb Se, whose OST includes her compositions.
