Alborosie Launches New Album ‘Destiny’
Reggae recording artist Alborosie launches his new album ‘Destiny’ with a performance at Amoeba, the world’s largest independent record store on album release date of May 26th via Greensleeves Records, VP Records and Shengen Entertainment. The album stays true to the artist’s signature sound, a blend of authentic Roots Rock Reggae and Dub with supreme songwriting skills and lyrical prowess.
The lead single “Viral” is a bass-heavy slice of contemporary Rub-a-Dub with a conscious look at social media and its purpose in modern-day society. Despite the allure of virality, Alborosie rejects it for himself, choosing substance over gimmickry. The track is mixed and produced in Albo’s classic vintage style, with heavyweight bass, crisp drums and sirens & effects echoing off into the abyss.
Destiny boasts an impressive list of collaborators with featured guest performances from such luminaries as Kabaka Pyramid, Buju Banton, Jaz Elise and Burro Banton to name but a few. Exploring themes of faith, life, love and the power of music, Albo presents a body of work that is relatable and humble, stating “I cannot make music that reflects the non-relevant. My Reggae should relate to the present…”
In 2023 Alborosie will embark on one of his biggest tours to date, kicking off throughout May on the West Coast of America before heading to Europe in June, July and August for festival season. His fans will be anticipating performances of new tracks from his forthcoming album, as well as crucial tunes from his vast catalogue of music.
