Eight-time GRAMMY® award winning musician and reggae icon Ziggy Marley will release his seventh full-length solo studio album, Rebellion Rises on May 18th through Tuff Gong Worldwide / V2 Records. Rebellion Rises marks Ziggy’s first studio release in two years, following 2016’s critically acclaimed self-titled project which took home the 2016 GRAMMY® award for Best Reggae Album and marked his fourth consecutive debut at #1 on the Billboard Top Reggae Album Chart.
Fully written, recorded and produced by Marley, this passionate and indelible 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 Ziggy. “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.” A manifesto with a chant-like chorus, the song emboldens its listeners to use the power we all have as instruments of positive change around the world.
Pre-orders for Rebellion Rises are available at ziggymarley.com beginning today, and digital pre-orders will be available starting Friday, April 6th exclusively on iTunes. All digital pre-orders will include an instant grat track of “Rebellion Rises,” which is also now available for streaming on Spotify, Pandora and Apple Music. Access the stream HERE.
