Ziggy's Rebellion RisesFriday, April 06, 2018
Eight-time Grammy Award-winning musician Ziggy Marley will release his seventh full-length solo studio album, Rebellion Rises, on May 18 through Tuff Gong Worldwide and it will be distributed in Jamaica and the Caribbean by Tuff Gong International.
Fully written, recorded and produced by Marley, this new collection of music encourages people to stand together in activism through love.
“The rebellion begins in the mind, the melody, and the music,” assures Marley. “We are a conduit of that. The rebellion is consciousness. Now the consciousness starts spreading, we become aware and we rise.”
No track embodies this message better than the album's title track and official first single Rebellion Rises. The song encourages its listeners to use the power humans have as instruments of positive change around the world.
“The better side of humanity cannot let the side of humanity that push negativity and hatred be more willing,” Marley explained in a recent interview. “It cannot happen. It's a battle of wills. We've got to have more will.”
Rebellion Rises marks Marley's first studio release in two years, following 2016's critically acclaimed self-titled project which took home the 2016 Grammy for Best Reggae Album and marked his fourth consecutive debut at #1 on the Billboard Top Reggae Album Chart. Digital pre-orders will be available starting today. All digital pre-orders will include an instant free track of Rebellion Rises, which is also now available for streaming on Spotify, Pandora and Apple Music.
This June, Marley will embark on the first leg of his North American tour with stops in a number of west coast markets including Napa, Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco. The tour will then make its way to Europe beginning June 29 where it opens in Legnano, Italy.
