Reggae’s heir apparent Chronixx has announced that his highly anticipated debut album, expected to drop early 2017, will be titled Chronology. The 24-year old Jamaican singer also revealed an extensive North American tour to support his forthcoming release. To top it off, Chronixx put out a new music video for “Majesty,” a single expected to be on his new album.
The Chronology North America Tour will be Chronixx’s biggest tour to date. Chronixx and his band, Zincfence Redemption Band, will be hitting all corners of the US and Canada, stopping in 38 different cities over 2 months. The tour kicks off in New Haven, CT on March 2nd, 2017 and concludes in Huntington, NY on April 30th, 2016.
“Majesty,” the first visual from Chronology, is Chronixx’s spin on the 1971 song “I’ll Be Around” by Otis Gayle (originally sung by The Spinners). The music video was directed by Chronixx and Che Kothari, and filmed on the picturesque property of Strawberry Fields Together in Jamaica’s St. Mary parish. “Majesty” was also featured on the Roots & Chalice mixtape that Chronixx released earlier this year.
The momentum behind Chronixx has been growing steadily since 2014, when he burst on the scene with his EP Dread & Terrible. Since then, the Spanish Town vocalist has put out a number of hit singles and mixtape titled Roots & Chalice. He’s also rocked the stage at major festivals like Coachella and Governor’s Ball, in addition to opening for the legendary English rock group The Stone Roses in Manchester’s Etihad Stadium.
While no official date has been set, Chronixx’s team has indicated that Chronology will drop sometime in early 2017. Be sure to jump on tickets for his North American tour, and check back shortly for the official release date of the new album. In the meantime, check out the brand new video for “Majesty.”
