Background and recording

"Dirgahayu" marked the first time for Siti Nurhaliza and Faizal Tahir right to record a song together[3]

The news about the recording arose when Faizal Tahir talked about it at his iAMFAITHMEN's Eid al-Fitr open house at The Gardens in Mid Valley on 20 July 2016[4] Originally meant to be mentioned briefly in the interview, Faizal decided to tell the media all about his project with Siti Nurhaliza[4] During the interview, he revealed that the song just finished recording a week before[4]

The whole duet project began when he was approached by Datin Zaiton Mohamad Jiwa, owner of Global Station[3] She offered him a chance to produce and record a duet with Siti Nurhaliza for her production house's latest television series, Lara Aishah[3] Upon receiving the offer, Faizal immediately worked on the song during the Islamic month of Ramadan[5] Siti and Faizal recorded their vocals separately since at the time of Faizal's recording, Siti was in Mecca to perform the Umrah[6] Fully composed by Mike Chan, Ezra Kong, and Faizal himself,[5] Faizal recorded his part during Ramadan while Siti recorded her part after Eid al-Fitr[3] Faizal commented: "Dirgahayu is fully composed by myself and two friends of mine which are Mike Chan and Ezra Kong Actually, before this people have been asking for Datuk Siti Nurhaliza and I to work together By happenstance, the production company, Global Station Pte Ltd proposed to me to compose a song with her for a 100-episode drama series for Astro"[7][a]

"Dirgahayu" marked their first effort to record a song together[3] Previously, they had worked together on a number of occasions including Konsert Satu Suara, a concert for Faizal Tahir in 2010 which was sponsored and produced by Siti Nurhaliza's own production company, Siti Nurhaliza Productions[8] He also composed and produced "Aku", one of the songs that was included in Fragmen, an album by Siti Nurhaliza which was released in 2014[9] He also has served as guest artist for a number of Siti Nurhaliza's concerts, including Dato' Siti Nurhaliza Unplugged 2015 concert[10] and Dato' Siti Nurhaliza & Friends Concert in April 2016[11]

Composition and lyrics
