7 time Grammy Award Winning artist, Stephen ‘Ragga’ Marley, will no longer be hitting the road this fall due to a change in his upcoming album release date. He has announced his Spring Tour dates which will support his upcoming album Revelation Part 2: The Fruit of Life.
While there’s no set release date for Revelation Part 2: The Fruit of Life, he has already released two singles with “Bongo Nyah” featuring Spragga Benz and Damian Marley as well as “You & Me Attract” featuring Busy Signal.
Revelation Part 2: The Fruit of Life is the follow up album to his latest release Revelation Pt 1: The Root of Life that was released back on May 24th 2011 and received a Grammy Award in early 2012. The Fruit of Life was initially planned for a Fall release back in 2011 & it appears Revelation Pt 2: The Fruit of Life will once again be pushed back, this time, to sometime in the spring of 2014.
“Reggae music has influenced hip hop and so many other kinds of music,” Stephen reasons. “THE FRUIT OF LIFE will be more open, eclectic kind of record. There will be songs for the club, dancehall reggae will be there, love songs in there, but it will remain conscious good music that you can always take something positive from.”
