Rastafarian vocalist Richie Spice is paying homage to Lionel Richie’s iconic hit “All Night Long” with a reggae cover on his upcoming album, “Black Man Time,” set for release on Friday, September 8, which also happens to be his birthday.
This song is one of three covers on the 14-track set and holds a special place in Richie Spice’s heart, as he has cherished it since his youth. “Black Man Time” is a project five years in the making, showcasing Richie Spice’s signature style. The album delivers a mix of sermonic messages and themes of love, happiness, freedom, and hope. Richie Spice hopes the project resonates with listeners and adds to their music collections.
With a loyal history at VP Records, Richie Spice has recorded nine albums for the label, and “Black Man Time” marks his latest offering. His decision to release this album now stems from a desire to provide music that resonates with those who feel disconnected from current musical trends.
Richie Spice’s music has consistently uplifted audiences; this album is no exception. It opens with “Tea Time,” a reimagining of his signature song “Earth a Run Red,” and closes with “Happy New Year.” As a member of the Rastafari movement, Richie Spice’s music reflects his spiritual and cultural beliefs, making it a unique and soulful addition to the reggae genre.
Richie Spice will celebrate his 52nd birthday with the official release of “Black Man Time,” a fitting celebration of his enduring contribution to reggae music.
