Indipop and Bollywood playback singer Sonu Nigam will soon be launching his first exclusively English album in the U.S.
Nigam, who made a brief stopover in South Africa to promote his forthcoming movie "Love in Nepal" here, said only close friends know about the plan for the album "Unfolding" so far.
"The album has been conceptualised by me, the music is composed, arranged and programmed by me, and I have also written the full lyrics for three of the songs. Others have been done by Allan Goldberg, and one is by Rupi in Canada.
"There are three songs in which three-times Grammy Awards winner Rita Coolidge appears.
"It's a very different album and I don't want to say too much about it. Hopefully it's going to be sold to an American recording company before the end of next month," Nigam told IANS in an interview here.
Nigam admitted it would be a tough task establishing himself in the highly competitive music market in the U.S.
"I may be a star in India and to Asians only (abroad), but I am very small fish in the American market.
"It may be a humble, small beginning for me, but I hope my fans keep their fingers crossed for me!"
