The Pakistan Cricket Board Saturday launched the anthem "Sab Sitaray Humaray" for the much-anticipated eighth season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Being touted as the biggest musical anthem of the year, the track is a joint effort of the biggest names in Pakistan’s music industry in their bid to create something beautiful.

The anthem has been composed by young musician Abdullah Siddiqui and features exceptional music talent including Coke Studio sensation Shae Gill, Asim Azhar, and rapper Faris Shafi.

For the second consecutive year, Siddiqui composed the PSL anthem as last year he, along with Atif Aslam and Aima Baig, produced the PSL 7 anthem named "Agay Dekh".

The anthem starts with Gill's vocals followed by the appearance of Asim. Faris added rap flavour to the anthem.

The lyrics are written by Azhar, Shafi, Ali, Raamis and Siddique.

The opening ceremony of PSL 8 will be held in Multan on February 13 prior to the tournament opener between 2021 winners Multan Sultans and defending champions Lahore Qalandars; meanwhile, the final will be played on March 19 in Lahore.

Lahore Qalandars will attempt to become the first side to win back-to-back titles; meanwhile, Islamabad United will aim to become the most successful side by lifting the trophy thrice.

Rawalpindi will stage 11 fixtures, Karachi and Lahore will host nine matches each, whereas Multan will have five home games.
