New Album (June 10) – Maxi Priest – Easy To Love

April 18, 2014 2 comments

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.” Read more…

ALBOROSIE ANNOUNCES U.S. RELEASE OF HIS
LATEST ALBUM AND VINYL LP SOUND THE SYSTEM
AVAILABLE SEPTEMBER 30 ON GREENSLEEVES
U.S. Tour Slated for February 2014

Alborosie may not be Jamaican by birth, yet he promotes reggae music in its truest sense. With dreadlocks almost touching the floor, the Sicilian-born singer – one turned Jamaican national – is a proud Rastafarian armed with a rebel philosophy. On Monday, September 30, 2013, he continues his musical mission with his self-produced, landmark album and vinyl LP Sound The System on Greensleeves Records. Alborosie also has a U.S tour planned for February 2014 in support of the North American release. Tour dates will be announced later this fall.

Sound The System, which was released in Europe in July, boasts the perfect balance of live instrumentation and analogue recording techniques and is filled with Alborosie’s signature thought-provoking lyrics, satisfying vocals and classic contemporary sound. The modern-day Renaissance man demonstrates a mastery of traditional reggae, while pointing the way forward for himself and the genre.

Alborosie describes Sound The System as “a new chapter” and “revolutionary in terms of the message.” “You’re going to hear some good music and learn to live good,” he adds. Read more…
