Nepathya releases promo of upcoming album on YouTube

KATHMANDU: Popular folk rock band Nepathya has released a 57-second promo of its upcoming album on YouTube after finishing all recording related work.

In it, the band's frontman Amrit Gurung is seen singing a song in his signature style in the band's recent show in Dubai.

Tenth in 23 years, the album includes tunes that the band's frontman Gurung collected from intensive travel across the country and few songs from renowned poets also.

The band said that the entire album was recorded in a ‘vintage’ styled one-take recording format in the Nepathya’s own rehearsal studio in Kathmandu.

"1st sneak to our 10th Album. Your love and comments will guide us further...," the band wrote on its official Twitter account along with the YouTube link of the teaser.
