The Jamaican artist’s forward-thinking album channels an array of styles and sounds from reggae, dancehall, dub, hip hop and rock into a cohesive 10 track LP. All songs were recorded at the legendary Marley-owned Tuff Gong Studios in Kingston and maintains the essence of Jamaican roots music, while pushing the envelope. “It’s not as traditional as my last album, but it’s still authentic,” explains Protoje. “It’s more innovative, more global and more experimental. I want to elevate reggae culture and the world’s perception of it.”

On A Matter Of Time, Protoje continues his creative partnerships with long-time producer Winta James and fellow roots king Chronixx, who is featured on two of the album’s tracks. This is the first time Protoje and Chronixx have collaborated since their 2014 smash “Who Knows,” which has garnered over 70 million Youtube views for the video alone.

Watch new video for his latest single “Bout Noon” (directed by Jay Will).

Album is available for pre-order now on Protoje.com and will be released on Easy Star in North America and Mr. Bongo in all other territories through licensing from In.Digg.Nation Collective and Overstand Entertainment.

Protoje is currently touring the United States and Europe in support of the release and will open two select dates in September for Ms. Lauryn Hill’s Miseducation 20th Anniversary Tour in San Diego and Las Vegas. See full tour schedule below.
