Alborosie returns with 'Unbreakable'
The new studio album from international reggae star Alborosie, 'Unbreakable Alborosie Meets The Wailers United', is slated for release June 29 with digital pre-orders going live this Friday.
Enlisting The Wailers United (former members of Bob Marley and The Wailers with the addition of Aston Barrett Jr) for instrumental backing, the album upholds the tradition of roots- rock-reggae.
While honouring traditional reggae sounds, the inclusion of Alborosie's revisioning of the Metallica classic The Unforgiven, featuring Raging Fyah, adds a new edge to the album that addresses contemporary issues with a thoroughly modern feel.
Unbreakable is Alborosie's ninth album for the Greensleeves label, following his last release Freedom in Dub in 2017.
The first single, Contradiction, featuring Chronixx, was self-produced and written by Alborosie.
"The song delivers a message to the people and the youths about everyday life and the social and political climate we are currently living in," he said.
Other artistes featured on the album include Beres Hammond, Jah Cure, and J Boog.
A video for Contradiction is in production with more videos and performances to be confirmed.
