KINGSTON, Jamaica – Reggae band and grammy-award winning group Third World on Friday released their 22nd studio album dubbed More Work to be Done.
The album is produced by Grammy-winning artiste and producer Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley, and features collaborations with Marley himself, Tessanne Chin, Chronixx, Tarrus Riley, Busy Signal and Pressure Busspipe.
More work to be Done has 11 tracks and is available on CD, cassette tape, vinyl and online digital platforms.
The six-member reggae band, who is celebrating 45 years in the industry, made its debut in 1975 as an opening act for the Bob Marley & the Wailer’s World Tour.
Their four-decade career has seen them earning 10 Grammy nominations and multiple charted hits including Now That We’ve Found Love, Try Jah Love and 96 Degrees in the Shade.
The album is the group’s first recorded project since the death of their former lead singer Bunny Rugs in 2014. Members of the group have praised the current lead singer A.J. Brown, who ‘was good enough to step in when Rugs passed’.
The launch event for the project took place at the Bob Marley Museum and attracted a number of industry players and peers who applauded Third World for wanting to keep the flame burning.
