Chakdey.Com exclusively announced in July 2012 that internationally acclaimed artist Diljit Dosanjh would be releasing his new album ‘Back To Basics‘ with music from Tru Skool! The album has now been released on iTunes and currently sits at 32nd place on the mainstream albums chart (3pm GMT). This is nothing short of a magnificent achievement for all involved and for Punjabi music as a whole. The first video from the album has also been released earlier today and can be viewed below.
This is Diljit’s first solo album for 3 years having released ‘The Next Level‘ back in 2009 alongside Honey Singh, which featured hits such as Panga and Desi Daroo. Since then Diljit has scaled new heights from Lak 28 which was a global anthem, as well as his recently released ‘Jatt & Juliet‘ movie and also the Dharmik album ‘Sikh‘ under Speed Records. Tru-Skool and Diljit met up in early April 2012 at his studio in the UK to work on the album.[image src=”http://media2.chakdey.com/Images/DiljitTruSkoolImage.jpg” width=”400″ height=”350″ title=”Diljit TruSkool” lightbox=”yes” align=”center”]
