The other tracks, he said, are new, never heard before singles produced by the singer along with other iconic producers like ‘Sly and Robbie’, Dean Fraser, CD Master and more. Almost all the songs on this, his latest joint, were written by Lloyd, and is a mix of the varying tastes of reggae, from roots rock to dancehall, to lovers rock and even Caribbean pop.
‘Stories from I Father’s Country’ will be released first in stores in Europe on May 3, the same date set for it to be available on internet sites including I-Tunes, Amazon and hundreds more music websites. Three months later, hard copies will then be made available in Jamaican stores in Montego Bay, Kingston and Portmore.
