Tanhai marks the assimilation of lonely hearts of Hariharan, Roopkumar Rathod, Suresh Wadkar, Shaan among a few surprises.

All the tracks have an underlying theme of loneliness as the title implies sure to appeal to discerning listeners, the old and young alike. A melancholic yet melodious album hoping to find its way into the heart of young listeners too, each of these multi-talented artists has interpreted the common thread of sadness and longing with complications in relationships in their own special styles enhancing the appeal of the album. The music for the album is composed by Shamir Tandon with the lyrical lord Sameer penning the songs.

The number Kuch Der Tak Kuch Door Tak by Hariharan re-establishes his position as the king of melody and is bound to take his music bahut door door tak!

Hariharan had sung the theme song of Traffic Signal under Shamir Tandon's baton. After Hari left Shamir's studio, one word in the whole song had to be redubbed —so Shamir called him and Hari came all the way from Hiranadani to my Shamir's studio at Lokhandawala, "I felt that the trip should be made more fruitful. So i got him to do this song and people liked it so much that a video was made for it," says Tandon.

The video shoot of the track requires special mention for its very eventful and action packed incidents. While shooting the video at Munnar and Allepey in Kerala, Hariharan ended up getting mobbed by a bunch of kids who got him and his wife to visit their home and serenade them before making him sing songs in Malayalam! If shooting in the slush wasn't enough, thanks to the storms in neighbouring Tamil Nadu, the deadly leeches of Munnar spared no one including Hariharan, actors Ayaaz Khan and Shilpa Anand along with video director Shivam Nair of Ahista Ahista fame. "Humne khoon paseena bahaya hai is video ke liye," chorus the team.
