Slated for an official 2019 release, fans are already getting a taste of what’s to come, since pre-orders went live on November 16th.

All pre-orders come with an immediate download for the track, Straighter Roads. This is the first instant gratification track that will be made available through pre-orders prior to the release of the album.

Produced by Ghetto Youths International and Zojak World Wide, the singer enlisted the creative contributions of a few superstars – his own brothers, Reggae artistes Damian “Junior Gong” Marley and Stephen Marley, who serve as Executive Producers and Producers.

“We worked with family and friends on this album, we worked with AG Zilla from London on Straighter Roads, my brothers, Lamar Brown and the Uprising family, which is my band who put a lot of work into it being mostly a live album,” he said. Aaron Mahlfeldt and Zoe Espitia are also Executive Producers on the album.

The project boasts an impressive 17 tracks and is graced with features from a few local and international stars, such as Snoop Dogg, Shaggy, Beenie Man, Spragga Benz and The Tamlins. Tracks include Are You The OneHey JackMagic Of Love and War Zone.

Continuing the legacy of his iconic father Bob Marley, he puts together a timely and organic composition that focuses primarily on inspiring tenets such as self upliftment, keeping in tow with social topics such as love and family.

The process all started with the singer and his guitar.

“It started with me and Jah and my acoustic guitar, writing in my bedroom and then on to Jamaica to recording at Tuff Gong. I worked with some great musicians there then it was on to Miami to finish up the sessions with Uncle Ds Studio and Lions Den Studio,” he said, explaining the process.

A long time in the making, this album drops a decade after his last release, the award winning Awake album, which was released in 2009 under Tuff Gong Records. Awake won ‘Best Album of the Year’ in the International Reggae and World Music Awards and was nominated in the Grammy’s ‘Best Reggae Album’ category. Now he’s back with an album that is bound to make listeners feel the message from somewhere deep.

“I describe this album as organic healing and uplifting,” he explained, “it’s called As I Am because it represents me as it’s what comes from within.” His aim is to create timeless positive music that lives on forever, as for him, music is a mission of divinity.

As I Am will officially be digitally released on January 25, 2019 while the physical format drops on February 8, 2019. Fans can look forward to thrilling music videos and great music, as well as the eventual As I Am Tour.
