Default UB40 Announce details of their new album

UB40 have announced details of their long awaited album “TWENTYFOURSEVEN” and have presented to the media details of who will be joining them on future live concerts and recordings.

DUNCAN CAMPBELL, brother of Robin and Ali Campbell, will join UB40 along with reggae star MAXI PRIEST to collaborate on future live shows and recording projects.

The band have also announced details of their long awaited album TWENTYFOURSEVEN which will be released on Monday 16th June 2008. The album will be the bands final recording with former member and lead singer ALI CAMPBELL.

MAXI PRIEST has established himself as one of the top British reggae singers of all time. He is one of only two UK reggae acts (the other being UB40) to score an American Billboard Number One with the song “Close to You”, which was released in 1990. During Maxi’s lengthy career, he has had ten successful album releases and collaborated with such musicians and artists as Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare and Beres Hammond.

DUNCAN CAMPBELL comes from a long standing and talented musical family, with both brothers Robin and Ali forming UB40 thirty years ago and their father, the renowned folk singer IAN CAMPBELL whose band the Ian Campbell Group established themselves as a highly proficient live act. On joining UB40, DUNCAN CAMPBELL said; “I’ve long admired UB40 as a band and always had a great respect for what Robin and Ali have contributed to the band with Astro, Brian, Earl, Norman and Jimmy. UB40 are the biggest and most successful reggae band in the world, so I was absolutely delighted and a little stunned of course to be asked to come and work with the band.

TWENTYFOURSEVEN” represents UB40 at their creative and musical best which takes strength and inspiration from their political and social conscience, arguably producing one of their finest albums to date of original material, cover versions and collaborations. The new album features seventeen tracks with collaborations from MAXI PRIEST, 1 LOVE & RASA DON from ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, MARVIN PRIEST and HUNTERZ. The album was recorded in Birmingham, London, Sweden, New York & Fayetteville, Georgia, USA.
