Egyptian rock band Cairokee have been working on a new album, which preparations took over a year.

In an interview with "Radio 9090" radio station on Thursday, Amir Eid, musician and frontman of the band, stated that the album will be released in September.

"We have been working on it for a year and 9 months, and God willing, it will be a good album, and will feature songs different from what is normal to the band,” he added.

Cairokee released their latest album, "Roma" on September 23, which topped the music streaming services in Egypt.

Cairokee also consists of lead guitarist Sherif Hawary, drummer Tamer Hashem, keyboarder Sherif Mostafa, and bass guitarist Adam el-Alfy.

The band was founded in 2003 but rose to fame with its revolutionary music after the 2011 Revolution due to its politically inspired lyrics and protest songs released following the revolution.

They were friends ever since they were young during their school days and Hashem was already a drummer back then.

In 2003, Eid and Hawary had already started an English band initially called, “The Black Star” and started playing covers of English songs alongside an Egyptian song entitled “Ghariba” that was loved by their audiences.

The band’s first major hit was “Sout El Horeya” which has millions of views on YouTube and was ranked a world record as one of the most-watched videos in the shortest period of time.

Their song “Ya El Midan”, featuring prominent Egyptian singer Aida el Ayoubi, who had previously retired in the 1990s, ranked number one on Facebook worldwide for downloads and number eight on YouTube with over half a million views on the video channel in just two days after its debut release.

Cairokee was mainly influenced by “The Beatles” and “Pink Floyd”.
