Next weekend, accomplished reggae singer Julian Marley will embark on a six-city tour of Brazil alongside The Uprising roots band.
Commencing Friday, September 16th, the South American outing dubbed “Don’t Ruin My World Tour” will see the Rastafarian crooner and his associates making their first stop in Curitiba before proceeding to São Paulo on September 17th, São Sebastião on the 18th, the 23rd in Rio de Janeiro, Vitória, the 24th, capped by a final performance on the 25th in Belo Horizonte.
In May, the two-time Grammy-nominated singer announced his upcoming EP, 1692, slated expected to be released this month via Monom Records. He also shared the first single, an electronic take on the 1967 rocksteady single “The Tide Is High.”
Originally written by John Holt and performed with his legendary vocal group The Paragons, Marley’s new interpretation brings the beloved classic back to its Jamaican roots over a bouncy dancehall beat supplied by producer and Monom Records chief Alexx Anteaus.
The official music video, directed by Damaniac Visualz, arrives alongside the single to instantly transport listeners to an island dance vibe. The accompanying visuals highlight Julian’s roots, reggae tones and flawless vocals against the backdrop of Jamaica’s historic Devon House, a heritage site built in 1881 by the first Jamaican black millionaire George Stiebel.
