Chinese songwriter and music producer Zhang Yadong has delighted fans by releasing on Sunday his latest personal album "Qian Liu", or "Undercurrent", which includes a previously unknown track by retired pop queen Faye Wong.
The track, titled "I love you", was originally the end song of director Zhang Yuan's 2002 film of the same name. The music has been rearranged for the album, according to a news release by music label 'Taihe Rye'.
Zhang's new album also features pop singers Pu Shu, Tian Yuan, Japan's Miu Sakamoto and America's Angela Harry.
Zhang had been working on the recording for more than five years before the release. The new album is now available via China Mobile's wireless music platform.
Zhang Yadong is widely known as the man behind Faye Wong's many hit singles. At the end of last year, he held a variety concert in Beijing and invited a dozen popular singers to interpret some 30 pieces that he had written.
