New Stephen Marley LP & supporting tour on the way

“Revelation Part 1: The Root of Life” is the title of Stephen Marley’s forthcoming LP, expected via Universal Music / Ghetto Youths International on May 24th, 2011.  Considering he won not one, but two Grammy’s for his last full-length effort, “Mind Control,” it goes without saying that it comes highly anticipated within the reggae community.  He’s got a full American tour planned for June / July with supporting acts yet to be announced, check for the full itinerary at the bottom – Quebecois fans should rejoice with Stephen’s only Canadian date scheduled so far!

A few of tracks have been made available via Soundcloud:

“No Cigarette Smoking” features Guyanese-Canadian singer Melanie Fiona, and has received over 100,000 listens..

“Jah Army” features brother Damian Marley & recently incarcerated Buju Banton (free Buju!) and is the first single from the album

Most recently, a clip from the opening track for the album “Made in Africa” was posted, featuring Nigerian-American rapper Wale & the cast of broadway’s “Fela”

“The Revelation Part 2: The Fruit of Life” is scheduled for release in the fall of 2011, which Stephen claims will have more of an ‘eclectic feel,’ while “The Root of Life” is described to be to be an homage to his original roots reggae foundation.
