Ziggy Marley will, on Friday, release his sixth studio album in Ziggy Marley – the first for the award winning artist in two years. Recorded in LA, Marley’s self-titled album follows on from the success of 2014’s Fly Rasta, which not only landed as a strong favourite, but also took home the 2015 Grammy for Best Reggae Album.
Of course, Marley’s name and heritage precedes him but instead of resting on Bob‘s legacy entirely in forming his own career, Ziggy has established himself as a leading figure of the genre as it is now, bringing reggae to more and more new fans both under his own name as the lead for Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers.
Ahead of the release of Ziggy Marley, we’re stoked to premiere a brand new single from it in “Start It Up”. A shining slice of reggae goodness, “Start It Up” is a great insight into what we can be expecting from this new album from one of the most well-known names in the genre.
