Lebanese singer Diana Haddad has begun the final countdown for the release of her upcoming album, scheduled to hit stores next week.
The new album features nine songs sung in various dialects.
According to the London based Elaph, Diana has chosen "Diana 2006" as the title, and has included the new duet "Mas wa Loulou" (Diamonds and Pearls) she sang with Algerian singer Chab Khaled.
Diana filmed the music video for the duet under the direction of Laila Kannaan and the singer has agreed with the director to film another video for the album, but will wait to see the reaction of her fans before selecting the second song.
The album, released under ‘Alam El Phan Production Company,’ had been postponed due to a serious car accident Diana suffered.
Diana and Tunisian singer Saber Ribaee engaged in a two week concert tour in three of the United States of America in mid-September, making stops in Fox Wood, Detroit, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Their performances drew large crowds of the Arab population residing there.
