Parishaan is the first song from Sumud album. Sumud is the third album by Niyaz. It was previewed in a performance in New York City in November 2011.

Sumud (صمود), which will be released on the 22nd of May 2012. Like their previous album Nine Heavens, it will be released as a double album with one disc each for acoustic versions and electronic versions of songs, though they report that some songs will be exclusive to one disc or the other, with only a single version. The album features the guest appearance of A.R. Rahman on the song Mazaar, a traditional Afghan folk song.

Struggle as a metaphor is something every human can relate to. One of the most prolific and challenging forms of struggle in the world today is the plight of ethnic and religious minorities, which is the topic of Niyaz's third album, Sumud (pronounced soomood) forthcoming on Six Degrees Records. Translating from Arabic as 'steadfastness,' lead singer Azam Ali chose this philosophical term as a symbolic reminder that, as she explains, 'every human being should inherit the right to live with dignity and freedom upon the land on which they are born.'
