Speaking about his experience while working on the film, based on the Nandigram incident, Gaboo said, "I'm very excited to be a part of this project. All the songs in the film have covered the genres quite well. It is a guaranteed crowd puller, especially for the youth."
Lahiri said, "Ujjvwal always wanted to gift a compilation of composition from all genres of music. The scores are versatile, right from the item number to the baul songs, which has created symmetry between the music and the story of the movie".
Replying to whether songs like "Lal Topke Galo" composed for the film "Swabhoomi" had an adverse affect on the youth; Lahiri said that the song was needed in the movie as per its script. "We should understand the sequence, where the farmers were forced to sign on the papers. Of course, it is contextual."
Speaking about the USP of the sound tracks, Ujjwal Chatterjee said, "In the film, a rock band plays an important role and they are intrinsic in taking the story forward. This album is a mixed bag with love ballads as well as dance numbers. It has the quality to become the listener's special edition with the variety it offers"
"Swabhoomi" contains seven songs; penned by Gautam Susmit, and Ujjvwal Chatterjee, the director himself.
Singers like Shaan, Sunidhi Chauhan, Bappi Lahiri, Gaboo have lent their voices to the album which was released by label Dhoom Music.
