Laura Khalil's upcoming album preparations exclude Rotana
Lebanese singer Laura Khalil recently traveled to the United Arab Emirates where she met a number of poets and composers in preparation for her upcoming album due to be released in the summer. The new album will feature a variety of styles in which Laura attempts for the first time in her career to present as a means of introducing something new for her listeners.
According to the London based Elaph, it is still unclear whether or not Laura will remain with her record production company Rotana or move on to a new one. This is due to the fact that Laura's past experience with Rotana was very unpleasant when the company delayed her previous album for over six months. The singer had made a direct and live complaint on the satellite station ART saying that she is very disappointed with the treatment of Rotana and does not plan to renew her contract.
Laura last album released last summer, was a collection of revived popular songs by prominent singers, Wardeh and Sabah. The new included Wardah’s two songs: Khels al Kalam (Nothing left to be Said) and "Ya Liali" (Oh Nights) in addition to Sabah’s song "Ashqa wa Ghalbana" (lover and helpless).
The singer had performed concerts in Arab countries including Syria and Morocco, as well asr Tunisia, where she received a private invitation from the Tunisian TV within the framework of the Music Festival, which is held annually in the Tunisian capital. - Albawaba.com
