Rahman's global connections are truly going great guns. And this time it is with Rolling Stones legend Mick Jagger, who has formed a new band, Super Heavy, in association with the Oscar-winning Indian composer.

Apart from Rahman, the band will also have singers Dave Stewart, Damian Marley and Joss Stone. If reports are to be believed, the newly formed group has already finished their record and shot for their first video.

Says Rahman, "18 months ago Dave Stewart, Mick Jagger, Damien Marley, Joss Stone and me experimented at a studio in Los Angeles, trying to write songs which had meaning.."

"We had a couple of more sessions after that trying to perfect every song that was written and presently we have around 16 to 18 songs and all the songs have a world sound by contributions from all of us."

He added: "Dave's and Mick's incredible musicality and Joss' soul singing, Damien Marley's Jamaican influence and philosophies and me bringing musicality from my world. It's all too early to talk about this but I guess you guys should know something atleast....."

Rahman, who also won two Grammies for his music in the Danny Boyle's potboiler 'Slumdog Millionaire', had also collaborated with American music icon Michael Bolton for the latter's new album releasing this June.
