The strains of guitar chords, drum beats, and vocal crescendos remain indistinguishable from those of the winds of change. Recognising this truth, GRAMMY® and EMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, humanitarian and visionary ZIGGY MARLEY infuses the spirit of revolution into his seventh full-length solo offering, ‘Rebellion Rises’.
Throughout the record, he encourages the people to stand in solidarity together.
Every song speaks to the rebellion, but the word ‘love’ is also in a lot of them. Love is the foundation – Ziggy Marley
This entire album is a message to the best side of humanity. It’s a rallying cry and encouragement for us to stand up. When we do, our actions will be felt. We will change the direction of this world instead of what we see happening today. We will make it better, but we have to do more. We have to take a stand. We have to get more active. No matter what the fake leaders say, we’re going to love one another first.”
The message resounds throughout every fiber of the track listing from “See Dem Fake Leaders” to the unbreakable grooves of “Rebellion Rises” and “Circle of Peace” the wailing guitars on “World Revolution” and “The Storm is coming” to the provocative living and breathing lyrics on “I Am A Human”. Recorded primarily at his Los Angeles home studio during 2017, ZIGGY MARLEY threads together a cohesive vision steeped in reggae tradition, yet markedly progressive and forward-thinking.
