Arooj Aftab Releases New Song ‘Whiskey’

    Arooj Aftab has unveiled a new song, ‘Whiskey’, lifted from her upcoming album Night Reign. Following ‘Raat Ki Rani’, the track features Kaki King and Gyan Riley on guitars, Maeve Gilchrist on harp, Linda May Han Oh on bass, Jamey Haddad on percussion, and TimaLikesMusic on keyboard and piano. Check it out below.

    “‘Whiskey’ is about being out at night with someone you like, but the evening gets a little carried away,” Aftab explained in a statement. “My friend has had too much, now I am tired, and I need to figure out how to get us both home. But overall somehow the night and the interaction is still pretty cute.”

    Night Reign, the follow-up to 2021’s Vulture Prince, arrives on May 31. Revisit our Artist Spotlight interview with Arooj Aftab.
