(VP RECORDS, NEW YORK) – Reggae culture sensation Richie Spice is back with a brand new collection of signature hits on his new album Book Of Job, in stores and online on March 15, 2011. This, his fifth studio effort, is packed with 12 tracks of socially conscious roots reggae tunes that have made the entertainer an international staple for reggae lovers worldwide.
Spice chose Book of Job as the title because of his commitment to creating uplifting music, which is as unwavering as Job’s faith was while enduring his many hardships. “A whole heap of things reach Job, he lose wealth, he lose him family, him lose everything, but because he was praising God, he regain,” Spice explains. “It’s the same thing with the music – it is righteousness me declare to the fullest and me nah go switch.”
Teaming up with acclaimed reggae producer Donovan Germain for the majority of the album, including the smash singles “My Life” (“Street Life”) and “Jah Never Let Us Down,” Spice also enlists the talents of other top producers such as Shane Brown for“Serious Woman” and Stephen “Lenky” Marsden on “Yap Yap.”
The first single from the album, “Black Woman,” produced by Raging Fyah, sees Spice paying homage to women, a theme that is as trademark as his culture and conscious messages. The single and accompanying video are now enjoying airplay on reggae channels globally.
“When you sing of good, you will find that evil rise up and try to dominate the good,” Spice observes. “But there are artists who never stray and I will always use my talent to do good because good will always overcome evil.”
