After the critical success of the release of his first single earlier this December, one of Pakistan’s leading singer and songwriter, Jimmy Khan has released the much awaited second song and video from the album ‘Tich Button’, titled ‘Tich Buttona Di Jori’.
Released in collaboration with Patari and Radio1FM91, ‘Tich Buttona Di Jori’ is an original urban folk/country tune written by lyricist Daniyal Malik (of Begairat Brigade) and composed by Jimmy himself. With a typical country song structure, ‘Tich Buttona Di Jori’ is a traditional yet comical rendition of the universal theme of harmony with a funky modern twist.
Much like the Tich Button itself, the song “Tich Buttona Di Jori” universally refers to things that perfectly fit into each other representing “Perfect Harmony”. This could point towards relationships, tools or objects that work best in consonance. The video itself depicts the same idea, intercut with a performance sequence.
Jimmy Khan has successfully incorporated the prevalent theme of harmony through a perfect orchestration and amalgamation of various instruments and melodies. This song combines “Traditional Punjabi Tunes” with modern sounds and retains Jimmy Khan’s signature style.
With his first folk album TICH BUTTON, intends to revive and rejuvenate old Punjabi folk poetry and tunes. He brings these to life by and songs infused with the signature Jimmy Khan Band sound. The songs have been arranged and tracked by the band at Saad Hayat’s Studio in Karachi and mixed by Zain Ahsan in Lahore.
