Sanjaya Malakar – New Song New Look

Season 6 contestant, Sanjaya Malakar, about to turn 21, and has got a new song and a new look.

He recently debuted a brand new song, a meandering little ditty called  “4 A.M” on New Day,   a local Seattle morning show.  The tune is off his upcoming album Life ~ Music ~ Love, set to come out in November.

Yippee.  Sanjaya cut off his hair.  And his singing is still so-so.  Sanjaya says he’s attempting to integrate world music into his sound.   Fellow Indian, Anoop Desai from Season 8 is attempting the same with his current music (I think Anoop has acheived a more current and seamless sound, but I digress).

“4 a.m.”  will be available exclusively for download on A Christmas album and T-shirt line are also coming soon.

Check out his performance and interview after the jump.
