Reggae icon Burning Spear will release his new upcoming album nationwide entitled OUR MUSIC,on September 20 - the follow-up to his 2003 Grammy-nominated FREEMAN. For more than 35 years, Burning Spear's music--thus his life--has inspired people on numerous continents; and has been one of the leading reggae artists to popularize and pioneer reggae music in the U.S. Since the beginning, his songs have implored listeners to fight oppression in all its forms, to work at improving their own condition and to consider the social impact of their actions. In the midst of its expected messages about love, oppression and African history, OUR MUSIC is a public confirmation that his brand of positive messaging is tempered with a strong sense of self. OUR MUSIC stands among the most joyful albums of his career. The album features throbbing basslines, bright horn parts and slinky female background singers; and the songs embrace persistence-- it's smart music you can dance to. OUR MUSIC builds upon the Jamaican native's legacy of musical activism; and with its inimitable dancing groove, the album percolates and bubbles rhythmically in its call for unity between races, between nations, between individuals and even between business associates. Of his more than 25 albums, nine have earned Grammy nominations, with one of them--1999's CALLIN RASTAFARI--receiving the Academy's Best Reggae Album honor. He remains one of the few reggae pioneers still working and influencing the people today.
