Former American Idol contestant Anoop Desai just released his debut music video to his second single "All is Fair (Crazy Love)" on February 3, and now he has announced his new plans to release a series of three EPs in 2011. Desai's Zero The Trilogy series will include Zero.0 (released April 20), Zero.1 (expected release in July), and Zero.2 (expected release in October).
The concept of the Zero series is to allow Desai to experiment with different sounds, emotions, and concepts. "[Zero] is cyclical, a start and an arrival. I want to play in both fusion and extremes with sound and subject matter," Desai explains. DJ Trauma is a co-executive producers; other collaborators include producers Calvin Matthews, Sak Pase, Wonderberg, and the Big Shots. While Zero.0 won't be available on iTunes until April 20, the download is currently available on Billboard.com. The April 20 iTunes release will include an additional song, "Wait."
Anoop Desai took 6th place on the 8th season of American Idol in 2008, making him the second Indian American to advance to the final stages of Idol, following Sanjaya Malakar. His first album All is Fair was released in 2010, which was followed by an All is Fair Tour in the Fall 2010.
