Rolling Stone lead singer Mick Jagger, 68, has lent his vocals in Sanskrit for AR Rahman’s new composition, Satyameva Jayathe. The song has been composed for the global band, Superheavy. “This is historic if Mick Jagger, Joss Stone and Dave Stewart and me come together for a song like this,” Rahman said.

Rahman says the project began in 2009. "18 months ago, we experimented at a studio in LA, trying to write songs which had meaning... We had a couple of more sessions after that trying to perfect every song that was written," he says, adding the album now has 16 to 18 songs and all have a "world sound".

"Mick and Dave's incredible musicality and Joss's soul singing, Damien Marley's Jamaican influence and philosophies and me bringing musicality from my world, give the album sounds from world over," he says.
