After a number of hit songs in Bollywood, Monali Thakur is dropping her debut non-film single today. Titled ‘Tamanna,’ the singer tells the media that it’s a happy dance number in the American Deep House genre.

“There’s no intense thought to the song but I’m just sharing with the world how I like to be in life. I love dancing and for me, the good life is being able to lead a happy one. When I’m upset, I go and dance my heart out till my feet give up. That’s what I am saying through the song,” she says.

Thakur has worked on singles before but they’ve never been released for some reason or the other. “I think everything has its own time,” she says. But, now, she will work on more non-film music. “It’s a blessing that we now have the digital platform to own our stuff and release it independently. So, I want to regularly release singles for my audiences.”

The singer emphasises the need for a music industry beyond films, like in the West, reprots DNA India. “The ecosystem here is weird and there is no growth of independent music. If we support more non-film artistes, we can also have another industry,” she says. “However, changes are happening slowly. I’m excited about that future and that’s why I’m working on non-film music, too,”

She also looks forward to releasing an album this year. “I’m not allowed to reveal the name. We’ve put in a lot of hard work in it,” she says. On film’s front, she reveals, “After Moh Moh Ke Dhaage, I’ve sung for Anu Malik once again and can’t wait for the track to be out. There are songs with Tanishk Bagchi and Meet Brothers. This year, I’m working with a lot of people whom I haven’t worked with before.”
