The new studio album from international reggae star Alborosie, titled Unbreakable – Alborosie Meets The Wailers United is slated for release tomorrow, June 29th.
Enlisting The Wailers United (former members of Bob Ma rley and The Wailers with the addition of Aston Barrett Jr.) for instrumental backing, the album upholds the tradition of roots- rock-reggae. One strong standout track is the powerful reggae interpretation of 1991 Metallica rock ballad “The Unforgiven” featuring Raging Fyah. Taken from self titled breakthrough album (Metallica), the song adds a new edge to the album that addresses contemporary issues with a thoroughly modern feel while still honoring traditional reggae sounds.
