Rebirth: A Personal Journey For Asad Ahmed
Asad Ahmed has been working for his album rebirth since the past 4 years. He said:
“I feel like Rebirth is me shedding my skin and coming clean. It’s about my rebirth. I’ve extensively worked for decades and while I’m proud of the work I’ve done, I feel times have changed,” he said.
“I listen to Pakistani music and I listen to the music produced globally and I see ours is quite outdated. So, with Rebirth, I am saying this is the sound of the 21stcentury and the future.”

“It’s an all-out rocker. It’s got a riff, which is all-out piledriver.”
