Executively produced by Warrior King under the Rootz Warrior Productions label and James ‘Dr. Suess’ Lord of Irie Sounds International, the 14-track album is the result of over three years of dedicated work.
“In the four years since my last album, Tell Me How Me Sound, I feel that I have progressed as an artiste. I have developed on my sound and lyrics to cross cultural barriers and that is reflected in The Rootz Warrior,” said the reggae singer born Mark Dyer.
The pair called on some of the best in the genre to create this work including musicians such as Computer Paul, Kirk Bennett, Everton Pryce and Sly & Robbie. The album also features guest producers Colin ‘Bulby’ York, Sheldon ‘Calibud’ Stewart, and Crawba Genius. The legendary Beres Hammond and cultural icon Richie Spice appear on tracks I Wouldn’t Do That and Heartbreaker respectively.
Fans of Warrior King are guaranteed to find something to suit them on this album. The Rootz Warrior offers lovers’ gems like Your Love Is Amazing, and Moonlight Bright; roots anthems Rastafari Protect I, and I Wouldn’t Do That (featuring Beres Hammond); and cultural selections Ain’t Giving Up, and Stand Up Inna The Fyah.
When not recording, Warrior King said he is still very active on the touring circuit, in USA, Mexico, Canada, Europe and Africa. The artiste’s hectic schedule resumes immediately after the album’s release on April 1, with back-to-back stretches of shows in USA and Europe.
The Rootz Warrior is officially available online on April 1, with a special pre-order on iTunes starting March 18. Fans who pre-order the album will be entitled to a free track exclusively available to the public before the full-scale distribution by Zojak World Wide.
Warrior King has already charted hits for Virtuous Woman, Never Go Where the Pagans Go, Hold the Faith, Can’t Get Me Down, Baby Girl and Melody.
