Soorma song 'Good man di' to release on 29 June; composers Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy reveal it has a bhangra vibe
The song will feature in Soorma when Sandeep Singh's family and friends welcome him back home after he is given moniker 'Flicker Singh'
Mumbai: 'Good Man Di Laaltain,' sung by Sukhwinder Singh for the film Soorma, has a very happy vibe, say composers Shankar Ehsaan Loy.
Soorma is a biographical film based on the life of hockey player Sandeep Singh, essayed by Diljit Dosanjh.
The celebratory song features at a point in the film where Sandeep Singh's family and friends are seen welcoming him back home after the sports media abroad christens him with the moniker — 'Flicker Singh'.
This transpired owing to his strong performance in the Indian Hockey Team ensuring victory for Team India with his famous Drag Flick.
"This song has a very happy vibe. We all worked on it keeping in mind Sandeep's feeling after achieving the feat of winning for team India and also been given the name 'Flicker Singh'. This song is definitely from our heart," Shankar Ehsaan Loy said in a joint statement.
Music label Sony Music will unveil the song on 29 June.
"We will be releasing 'Good Man Di Laaltain' as the third single on 29 June. It is a fun song and has a bhangra vibe to it." Composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy and penned by Gulzar, the song ignites the feeling of dance and watching the lead crew groove makes one want to do the same.
"We plan on releasing the entire album in the first week of July across audio streaming platforms," said Sanujeet Bhujabal, Marketing Director, Sony Music India.
Soorma is directed by Shaad Ali and produced by Sony Pictures Networks Productions, Chitrangda Singh and Deepak Singh.
"We have received a phenomenal response to the first two songs ('Ishq Di Baajiyaan' and 'Soorma' anthem) and are hoping that this song too, sung by Sukhwinder Singh, gets a lot of love from the audience," said Sneha Rajani, Head, Sony Pictures Networks Productions.

In the playlist-driven world of today, where songs are tagged and heard by mood, genres seem to be becoming increasingly irrelevant, particularly during the compositional process.
