For The Many [Import] on LP

'For The Many' is the new album from UB40, their first in five years with all original songs and includes the singles 'You Haven't Called' and 'Moonlight Lover ft Gilly G'. Formed in Birmingham in 1978, UB40 named themselves after the UK government's unemployment benefit form. Their debut album 'Signing Off' was released in August 1980 and is considered by many to be one of the greatest reggae albums ever released by a British band. It was the start of a career that led to 100 million record sales worldwide, forty UK Top 40 hits - including three Number 1s!'For The Many' is the Birmingham reggae veterans' nineteenth studio album - their first since 2013's 'Getting Over The Storm' - and features UB40's founding members Robin Campbell (covocals/Guitar), Brian Travers (saxophone/keyboards), Jimmy Brown (drums), Earl Falconer (bass/keyboards/vocals) and Norman Hassan (percussion/vocals), alongside long-time members Duncan Campbell (vocals), Martin Meredith (saxophone), Laurence Parry (trumpet) and Tony Mullings (keyboards). The album features guest appearances from Birmingham rapper Gilly G, who features on 'Moonlight Lover' and Jamaican artist/producer Kabaka Pyramid on 'Broken Man'. UB40 are reunited with reggae deejays/artists Pablo Rider on 'I'm Alright Jack' and Slinger on 'Gravy Train', both of whom appeared on the band's 1985 album Baggariddim. The album's closing track 'All We Do Is Cry' sees the band collaborate again with British Asian urban musician Hunterz. Robin Campbell added, "For The Many is a great mix of reggae styles, while the different artists we have collaborated with will appeal to more fans and tastes in reggae - it really is an album for the many. The 2019 UK tour is a continuation of our 40th year celebrations, as well as sharing tracks from our latest album. We're playing all over the UK instead of a few arenas dates, meaning our fans from all over the UK can get to see us much more locally and up close - truly a tour for the many. "
