Singer-Composer Adnan SamiSinger-composer Adnan Sami Khan took a sabbatical to deal with his father's death and says his dad's absence some times make him feel like an orphan.

"My father's passing away was so huge that it eclipsed everything... Nothing else was important - I mean to the point that I feel like an orphan without my father. He was my mentor, guide, best friend... everything," Adnan told IANS.

Arshad Sami Khan, a former Pakistani diplomat, passed away in 2009 in Mumbai. He died from cancer of the pancreas.

"That loss was so big nothing else was important. I needed a bit of time out to gather myself. Healing is a process and it takes time. Three years were spent trying to deal with it," he added.

The singer recently released his new album "Press Play" and refuses to call it his comeback tool.

"I may not have been in the forefront creating music for public, but as musician I don't look at it as a comeback. If people want to call it a comeback, then so be it," he said.

Although independent music has faded, Adnan, who once ruled the independent albums scene with "Tera Chehra" and "Kabhi To Nazar Milao", still believes in the genre.

"I have always been a huge believer in the albums because in the West independent albums are still doing well. It's just that the format has changed from CD to digital, but format changing is not a new phenomenon," he said.

"The format must have changed, but people still love listening to the music. If the music is good and if it's presented properly on the right platform, it will work," the 43-year-old added.

"I just hope independent music comes back and if press plays a pioneer in it, I'd feel honoured about it," he added.

Known to cast celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan in his album, he feels stars presence do not guarantee success of any product.

"I was the one who started the whole process. I am a firm believer that it (celebs) enhances, but doesn't guarantee (success of an album).

"If compilation of stars is going to guarantee the success of any product, then all multi-starrer films would be a blockbuster, which they are not. The content is always the king. Stars doesn't guarantee the success of any product."
