Stephen Marley leaked a track from his forthcoming album titled REVELATION PART II: THE FRUIT OF LIFE.
The track, titled “Rose Or A Thorn,” features the Roots’ Black Thought weighing in on 21st century race relations and staying true to yourself amidst a laconic, jazzy backdrop.
“The concept of the [new] album means merging my music with hip-hop and anything else I feel like,” he tells Rolling Stone. “Every aspect from the songwriting to the production, even the way I sing certain parts of a song, has to return to that concept.”
REVELATION PART II: THE FRUIT OF LIFE will arrive this summer and will feature contributions from Rick Ross, Ky-Mani Marley, Busta Rhymes, Wyclef Jean, Shaggy, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Rakim and many others.
