Popular singer of recent times, Joy Shahriar, launched his fourth studio album titled Lapatta at Teachers-Students Center (TSC) of Dhaka University (DU) recently. Aajob Karkhana, in Association with Aajob Records & Dhaka University Band Society (DUBS), organised the event.
Besides Joy Shahriar, some other bands, including Sina Hasan and Bangla Five, ARJAN, Mahaan Fahim, GaanKobi, Suhrid, DUBS and The Miliputs from Kolkata performed at the programme, hailing the new album.
The album was unveiled by legendary composer and lyricist, Prince Mahmud.
Joy told The Daily Star that the new album was released from his own production Aajob Records and will feature a total of eight songs written and composed by himself.
“A lot of things are missing from the city. There is no greenery, no playgrounds as before, no true love,” expressed Joy. “All around, there is chaos and complexity, and thus, I feel life is going to disappear from the city. Due to this, I have selected the name Lapatta (missing) for my album.”
Joy Shahriar burst into the music scene a decade back, with his hit Shotti Bolchi Tomakey Ar Bhalobashi Na from the album Shotti Bolchi in 2009. Ekhon-e (2011) and Thik Ebhabei (2014) are among his other albums.
