Reggae star Warrior King is set to release his new album Tell Me How Me Sound, due in stores and digital outlets this Friday, September 23.
Colin ‘Bulby’ York-produced album features tracks such as Nah Tell Nuh Lie, produced by famed production team Steely and Clevie, Sweet Empress from iconic production duo Sly and Robbie, Melody (Tell Me How Me Sound) from York’s Fat Eyes Productions team and music from Warrior King’s own Rootz Warrior outfit.
Producers on the album are touting it as a classic even before its release.
“Many people feel that reggae is deteriorating; that it’s become a hustle to put together a tune, get it out and get a dollar as fast as possible,” says Mark ‘Warrior King’ Dyer. “I wanted to do something that builds on the foundation of excellence set by Bob Marley, Burning Spear, Toots, Jimmy Cliff, and all of the artistes that branded reggae internationally — something that music fans will be playing for years and years to come.”
“I don’t think artistes and producers these days are spending a lot of time and energy on making music — its watering down the sound,” explains Bulby York. “When people listen to Tell Me How Me Sound, I want them to get a sense that this is what reggae should sound like at all times.”
“This is our first project with Warrior King and we are very impressed with the energy and passion that he puts into his music,” says Tad Dawkins, owner of Tad’s Record. “We are looking forward to the release of this album — this is definitely a must have for people who love good music.”
