In celebration of the 70th Earthstrong of Tuff Gong, the Marley family has opened up their personal vault to the fans and released a brand new, never-before-seen live concert video titled ‘Easy Skanking In Boston’. The show was held at Boston’s Music Hall during the 1978 Kaya Tour, and was filmed by a single cameraman whom Bob allowed to shoot from the front row. It’s some of Marley’s most energetic footage to date, and really gives a unique look into his live performances, making fans feel like they’re actually there watching the show from up close.

The video was released on February 17th, and is available as a CD, DVD/CD, Blu-Ray/CD, and digitally on iTunes and Google Play.

Stephen Marley premieres new track, “Rock Stone”, via WSJ’s Speakeasy

After Stephen “Ragga” Marley explored his musical origins on his Grammy-winning 2012 album “Revelation Part 1: The Root of Life,” the reggae singer branches out on a new album, “Revelation Part 2: The Fruit of Life,” due this summer. Marley premieres “Rock Stone” from the upcoming LP today on Speakeasy.

With guest spots from Capleton and Sizzla, the song at first doesn’t stray too far from a deep roots-reggae sound that is identifiably Marley’s, with an easy backbeat pushed forward by a circling bassline. Then a burst of synthesizers and shuddering electronic beats slashes in about three-quarters of the way through the song—an indication, Marley said, of the far-reaching influence of reggae.

“The new album is a collaborative project that blends all genres from hip-hop to even EDM (as seen on this track), but its foundation is reggae music, and this meeting of the minds between Sizzla, Capleton and myself is living proof that Jamaican music is a force to be reckoned with,” Marley said.

“Revelation Part 2: The Fruit of Life” is due this summer on Ghetto Youths International (which Stephen co-owns with his brothers Damian and Julian), with contributions from Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes, Wyclef Jean and Marley’s brothers, Damian and Ky-Mani Marley. Before that, though, the singer is set for an extensive U.S. tour that begins April 12 in St. Petersburg, Fla., and winds its way across the country before wrapping up June 29 in Rothbury, Mich.
