Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger has sung in Sanskrit on a new album by a supergroup, which stars Oscar-winning Indian musician AR Rahman.

Jagger sings Satyameva Jayate (Truth alone triumphs), the second single from a supergroup called SuperHeavy which also features Dave Stewart, Joss Stone, Damian Marley.

Satyameva Jayate is the band's second single.

SuperHeavy's album is expected to be released in September.

"Dave said AR [Rahman] we want your voice in this album... we want this to be a great Indian song too. A long dream for me to raise one of the morals of Indian culture which is Satyameva Jayate and make it as a song," Rahman was quoted as saying by the Press Trust of India.

"This is historic... it is iconic in a way. I hope people will like it," he said.

Jagger formed the band in May, saying that he "wanted a convergence of different musical styles".

"It's different from anything else I've ever been involved in," Jagger told Rolling Stone magazine .

"The music is very wide-ranging - from reggae to ballads to Indian songs in Urdu."
