Kolkata, Sept 21 (Calcutta Tube/IBNS): Popular Bengali singer Rupankar, joining the league of those coming out with albums on the occasion of the forthcoming festive season (DURGA PUJA), released ‘Mohonay’ here on Monday.

Composed by Amit Banerjee, the eight-track album revisits the “melody era” and carries the essence of legendary music composer R D Burman in every single track, is how the people behind the album presented it.

“I wanted to do something different from what I have been doing over the past few years. As the years go by, there have been changes in my style and attitude. This is an attempt to revisit the old Rupankar,” said the singer.

Upon further prodding, Rupankar, whose early-day hits ‘Ruby Ray’ and ‘Bho Katta’ still are among his most loved numbers, said it was his  erstwhile simplicity that he  tried to bring out again through the album.

“My favourite in the album would have to be the first track, ‘Aye Mon’. But its not just that one track, each and every one of them has a special story behind it,”  he said.

People from the Bengali music fraternity, including Srikanto Acharya, Joy Sarkar and Anasua, turned up for the evening, which was anchored by funnyman Mir.

Despite the decline of physical sales of albums due to piracy digital means of distribution, Orion Entertainment, the album producers, said they were optimistic that Mohonay would fare as well as their last few albums had.

Listen to Amono Dine tare Bola Jay by Rupankar:
Emono dine tare bola jay
Emono ghono ghoro borishay
Emono dine mono khola jay
Emono megho shore, badolo zhoro zhore
Topono hino ghono tomoshay
Emono dine tare bola jay

She kotha shunibe na, keho aar
Nivrito nirjono charidhar
Dujone mukho mukhi, gobhiro dukhe dukhi
Akashe jolo zhore onibar
Jogote keho jeno nahi aar

Shomaj shongsharo miche shob
Miche jibonero kolorob
Keboli akhi diye, akhiro shudha piye
Ridoyo diye ridhi onubhob
Adhare mishe geche aar shob

Tahate e jogote khoti kar
Namate pari jodi mono bhaar
Srabono borishone.. ekoda griho kone
Du kotha boli jodi, kache tar
Tahate ashe jabe ki ba kar

Bekulo bege aj bohe bay
Bijoli theke theke chomokay
Je kotha e jibone, rohia gelo mone
She kotha aji jeno bola jay

Emono ghono ghoro borishay
Emono dine tare bola jay
Emono ghono ghoro borishay
Emono dine mono khola jay ||
