Musician and actress Shruti Haasan recently collaborated with a British alternative rock band called ��Dinosaur Pile-Up�۪ to sing in and co-write with for a brand new album together.
According to DNAIndia, a source says, “Shruti has been to London a few times recently to meet and jam with the English Alt-Rock band Dinosaur Pile-Up. She has been jamming with lead singer and guitarist Matt Bigland, drummer Mike Sheils and bassist Jim Cratchley. When she spent time with them, she enjoyed the vibe of their music and felt it was in line with her own musical inclination. She is someone who’s always written her own songs right from when she had her former band – Shruti and the Extramentals. She has also co-written the lyrics for tracks that she’s working on with Dinosaur Pile-Up. Music has been a very deeply rooted facet of her being and unlike most singers, who are just singers, she’s a complete musician – someone who writes, composes and sings her own songs.”
After Haasan’s recent Women’s Day special association with Ehsaan and Loy (of Shankar Ehsaan and Loy fame), this is the next big musical step. While Haasan wasn’t available for comments, her spokesperson confirmed the collaboration indicating that it’s going to be an album to watch out for without delving into details.
