Awakening Music is thrilled to announce the worldwide release of Maher Zain’s new single Antassalam. The highly anticipated single and music video is available worldwide for digital streaming and download, and on YouTube. Singer, songwriter and producer, Maher Zain has become a household name following the release of his first three multi-platinum, chart-topping studio albums Thank You Allah, Forgive Me and One.
Antassalam (meaning: You [God] Are Peace) explores the struggles we face in today’s world: searching for peace of mind, grappling with self doubt, coping with stress, and ultimately finding peace and solace in the Divine. The song features a refreshing blend of English and Arabic, rich contemporary beats and an elegantly stripped-back musical arrangement, combined with heartfelt, personal and spiritually uplifting lyrics.
The music video was shot in Stockholm, Sweden, and directed by Swedish director Guy Aslan.
“I’m delighted that my new single is being released today. I am so excited for people to listen to it and watch the music video. The song explores the themes of searching for peace of mind, struggling with self-doubt and finding peace in the Divine, all of which are things I have experienced personally. Given the current global health crisis, I know I am not alone in feeling this way, and that many will be able to relate to the sentiments expressed in this song. I hope that Antassalam speaks to them on a personal level and helps them on their journey. I have always tried to make music that speaks about personal experiences and comes from a place of deep reflection, and I firmly believe that what comes from the heart will touch the hearts of others,” said Maher Zain.
“Awakening Music is proud to present to the world Maher Zain’s new single & music video. Antassalam embodies the importance of music as a source of healing during these turbulent times the world is facing due to COVID-19. The song conveys the message we want to share with the world: we are all human, facing the same difficulties and grappling with similar fears and insecurities. We are all on the same journey, and we’re all in this together, and we pray that we all manage to find a little peace in these stressful times. We are super excited about the new single and we hope that it will resonate with millions of people across the world,” commented Bara Kherigi, Managing Director of Awakening Music.
