REGGAE SUPERSTAR

MAXI PRIEST RETURNS WITH NEW STUDIO ALBUM

EASY TO LOVEON VP RECORDS ON JUNE 10

With over 15 million albums sold worldwide, a No. 1 U.S. Billboard hit and a Grammy nomination, the most successful solo act in British reggae history Maxi Priest returns with his brand new studio album Easy To Love on VP Records available June 10th, 2014.

The new album is a fine representation of lovers’ rock, an effortless blend of reggae, R&B and dancehall with universal appeal. The sophistication he brings to these tracks is the mark of true quality. His delivery and phrasing are impeccable, and his choice of material and collaborators are strategic and brilliant.

Lead single “Easy To Love” was a No. 1 hit on reggae charts last summer, evidence that Maxi Priest has a gift for staying fresh. The song features the legendary Jamaican drum and bass duo Sly & Robbie, who’ve played on some of Maxi’s biggest hits, including “Wild World,” “Some Guys Have All The Luck,” “Close To You,” and “Housecall” (featuring Shabba Ranks) as well as the new album track “Every Little Thing.”

Maxi’s been tugging on women’s heartstrings ever since the mid-80’s. New and long-term fans alike will relish hearing irresistible tributes of enduring affection like “Loving You Is Easy,” “Holiday,” “Still In Love,” and “Gravity” written originally by John Mayer. The soulful “Without A Woman” features Jamaican legend Beres Hammond and even echoes the themes and intensity of James Brown’s “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World.”

There are many more highlights on the Easy To Love. While “Hearts Across The World” is a song for our times and pleas for people of all races to love one another, other tracks like “Fire In The Skies” simply defy categorization and are living proof of Maxi Priest’s musical versatility.“ The delicate, aching need of “Angel Wings” also demonstrates just how far reggae has evolved in the new era.

Maxi Priest says “this album is about time, and a moment,” and with his most refined and chic collection to date, his timing could not be better.
