This Friday (July 10), Jah Cure will release his new studio album The Cure (VP Records). With his beguiling vocals and soulful conviction, one of Jamaica’s greatest voices effortlessly blends street poetry and sufferer’s tales with beautiful love ballads into one cohesive collection. The 13-track set is a return to roots reggae and lover’s rock with R&B and pop-fused elements. Jah Cure is currently touring in support of the release, covering Europe’s summer music festival circuit. See full dates below.
Critics have already begun to sing their praises of the new album.
“One of the most anticipated albums of 2015…Cure remains one of the greatest living reggae singers” – Mass Appeal
“…his best album yet…evidence that Jah Cure is among the most talented and influential Jamaican artists of the modern roots era.” – MusicSnake
“…timeless reggae…got the musical remedy for all…making the likes of Bob Marley smile from the heavens” -ARTISTdirect
ARTISTdirect also premiered the new “gorgeous” song “Show Love” off the album yesterday.
Jah Cure co-produced the entire album with the help of reggae producers like Christopher “Sketch” Carey, Clive Hunt, Llamar “Riff Raff” Brown, Justin “Jus Bus” Nation and Trevor “Baby G” James. The Cure features recent hits like his #1 reggae chart-topping John Legend cover “All of Me” (which received over 5 million YouTube views), “Rasta,” “That Girl” and “Life We Live” as well as brand new singles including “No Friend of Mine” “Made In California,” “I Surrender” and more. Jah Cure’s multi-faceted story of struggle and love is intertwined into The Cure. “My struggles made me who I am today. That’s why I sing with feelings, it comes from my heart cause I feel the pain. Who feels it knows it,” he states.
