Alira’s debut single, Take Flight, has hit the UAE airwaves, with a Dubai-based radio station calling the Emirati singer and songwriter “an artist to watch”.
The club track is Alira’s original composition and features his dynamic countertenor vocal. The song is now available on Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, Amazon Music and Anghami.
Alira is the first Emirati pop performer known for his trademark countertenor vocals—the equivalent of a male soprano sound. He also sings in whistle register.
“Alira is definitely an artist to watch; I’m sure an artist that we will be playing a lot in the future,” Aylissa Boyce, radio presenter at Luv 107.1 radio in Dubai, said during a live interview with Alira earlier this week.
“I’ve played it several times.. It’s got that catchy hook. So good!” said Boyce, describing Take Flight.
Talking about the inspiration behind Take Flight, Alira said he was “looking to create an upbeat song that people can dance, vibe and have a good time with”.
“I have written various kinds of ballad songs but I wanted to create a song in the pop and dance genre,” Alira said.
