Veteran singer-composer Bappi Lahiri, who has made songs for a new film titled Do Pal Pyar Ke, says new film tracks have a lesser shelf life as compared to the old times.
Bappi, who is known for introducing synthesised disco music in Hindi cinema, said in a statement: "Old songs are forever and have been recreated in different languages. People of every generation keep listening to them for years and they like them.
"Even I have recreated songs like 'Tamma Tamma' in a new film. But nowadays original songs vanish in a few days and old ones keep on coming in a different version. Old is gold."
On his upcoming film album, the famed composer said it's a "beautiful" project produced by Manju Bharti under the Vivek Films banner. The film is directed by Partho Ghosh.
"I have given five songs in the film. I have composed all of them, and they are of different genres — romantic, party, disco, Sufi."
Bappi is known for chartbusters like 'Yaad Aa Raha Hai', 'Pag Ghungroo Baandh', 'Raat Baaki Baat Baaki' and 'De De Pyaar De'.
