Grammy award winning singer-songwriter, Stephen Marley, is set to release his third solo project, Revelation Part 1, The Root of Life on May 24.
The album delivers an organic and richly textured sound through the 14 tracks and features collaborations with R&B star Melanie Fiona, brother Damian Jr. Gong Marley and Buju Banton.
Conceived as a two part project, The Root of Life will be followed by the release of Revelation Part 2, The Fruit of Life, due out this autumn and will feature an array of styles that have emanated from reggae’s core.
Stephen says that ‘The Fruit of Life’ will be a more open, eclectic kind of record.
There will be songs for the club, dancehall reggae and love songs, but the album will maintain its conscious vibe.
Stephen is currently on tour to support the album’s release.
