Long-lost Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan album to release in September

A new album of unheard recordings by the Pakistani musical icon “ Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.” 

Recorded 34 years ago will be released on 20 September 2024. 

The ‘Lost album’ – named “Chain of Light” was discovered in the tap archives of Peter Gabriel’s Real World Record, the label that Khan signed in 1989.

‘Chain of Light’ is an important album by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. It features four traditional Sufi Islamic songs called qawwali, including one that never heard before. This album was recorded in 1990 in the Real world stations. 

I’ve had the privilege to work with a ton of different musicians from all over the world in my time. Still, perhaps the greatest singer of them all was Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan,” Peter Gabriel said in a statement released by the company.

“What he could do and make you feel with his voice was quite extraordinary, and we were very proud to have played a role in getting him to a much wider global audience,” he added. “It was a real delight when we found out this tape had been in our library. This album really shows him at his peak. It’s a wonderful record.”
