After the refreshing and unique Explorer segment, Coke Studio continues to mix things up in the show.

The show released a music video starring Season 11's featured artists as they sing verses from Faiz Ahmed Faiz's 'Hum Dekhenge'.

The soulful video revealed that alongside Coke Studio regulars like Ali Azmat, Ali Sethi and Momina Mustehsan, lesser known performers will be featured on the show as well. These include Krewella, EDM sister act from the USA, and rap acts like Young Desi and Lyari Underground.

That's not all.

Among other firsts, actor Ahad Raza Mir made his debut (did you know that he could sing?) and Haniya Aslam who takes her place behind the mic after a long hiatus in the US.

Hassan Jehangir is a notable veteran who will make his debut this season.

Out of all the things this music video had in store for us, the most heart-warming was seeing transgender artists, Lucky and Naghma, who will also be featured in an episode during this season.

This season also sees a number of performances from bands. Chand Tara Orchestra, for example, features Sherry Raza on vocals and chants; multi-instrumentalist Rizwan Ullah Khan on harmonica; Babar Shaikh on bass and analog effects and Omran Shafique on guitar and effects.

Returning artists to the show include Abida Parveen, Humaira Arshad, Abrar-ul-Haq, Gul Panrra and Shuja Haider.

The first episode of Coke Studio will air on August 10.
