Alborosie Releases Video for Rock Ballad Cover
Written by Midwest Reggae on September 28, 2018
The new music video and single ‘The Unforgiven’, featuring Raging Fyah, by international reggae star Alborosie is out now on his YouTube channel.
A powerful reggae interpretation of the 1991 Metallica rock ballad, the single has reached more than 1.7 million streams worldwide and 150 spins on radio a week picking up support from mainstream alternative radio in the US and Europe.
The Unforgiven is the second single from the new studio album, Unbreakable: Alborosie Meets The Wailers United, which was released on June 29.
The album has reached nearly seven million streams worldwide. Enlisting The Wailers United (former members of Bob Marley and The Wailers with the addition of Aston Barrett Jr) for instrumental backing, the album upholds the tradition of roots-rock-reggae.
Alborosie will be performing at Slightly Stoopid’s ‘Closer To The Sun’ Festival from November 30 to December 4 in Riviera-Maya, Mexico, alongside UB40, Michael Franti, Thievery Corporation, Yellowman, and many more.
“We’re very excited about The Unforgiven, it’s a great re-visioning of the Metallica hit that we hope will expand Alborosie’s audience even beyond reggae,” said Randy Chin, president at VP Records. “We feel the will bring new fans to discover this great artiste and a great album.”
