Alborosie Escapes In Feb 2010

Sicilian-Jamaican singer Alborosie's new album Escape From Babylon To The Kingdom of Zion will drop on Greensleeves February 16, 2010.

'Albo has made waves with songs like "Kingston Town" and "Precious" (featuring Etana).

For an Italian, has cleverly absorbed a sincere patois vocal inflection and mastered an authentic Jamaican music production aesthetic. His gravely vocal style works well in the one-drop format and his songs have featured a host of complimentary guests like Steel Pulse's David Hinds, Gramps Morgan (Morgan Heritage) and Rankin Joe.

This video aptly sums up the singer's impact and potential. Reggae gone worl'wide!
