The focus of this single, however, is more the artiste's concerns with the boundaries that he believes have been created everywhere. "Collective consciousness can change destiny," he said, following the unveiling of the single at the Dhirubhai Ambani International School in Mumbai last week. "In oneness, many good things happen and humanity has proved this before. But now, we have borders in our minds about everything — race, religion and nationality." Eventually, he says, the song will find its way onto an EP, one that will deal with "branches of the same theme".
In recent times, much like every other music project Rahman has ever been associated with, his music for Jab Tak Hai Jaan and the upcoming Tamil film Kadal have been the topics of discussion. While the former was not particularly well-received, the latter has been much more so. The fate of Jab Tak Hai Jaan's music, however, he attributes to the fact that "expectations were sky high". "Aditya Chopra and Yashji (the late filmmaker) loved the tunes, so we went with their taste."
Film projects apart, one of the many things that brought Rahman into the spotlight this year was his association with Mick Jagger and other artistes for a project titled "SuperHeavy". Jagger, Rahman, Joss Stone, Dave Stewart and Damian Marley came together to form the band that eventually released a self-titled album in September, to mostly positive reviews. Since then, there has been little activity on that front. "'SuperHeavy' was hot and we got invitations from all over the world, but some of our members became very busy with other projects," he says.
