“Twentyfourseven” represents UB40 at their creative and musical best which takes strength and inspiration from their political and social conscience, arguably producing one of their finest albums to date of original material, cover versions and collaborations.
This is how the band define the new album, and no one can possibly argue. In this new album the band is provind to be very inspired and despite the pop touch is still there they are rediscovering their pure Reggae roots. The first song on the album (sung by Ali Campbell) is an instant classic, oure class.
The new album features seventeen tracks with collaborations from reggae stalwart Maxi Priest, 1 Love & Rasa Don from Arrested Development, MARVIN Priest and Hunterz.
The album was recorded in Birmingham, London, Sweden, New York & Fayetteville, Georgia, USA.
The split from singer and frontman Ali Campbell was all over the music press.
This is giving the new UB40 album a really special meaning, possibly being the final studio album with original singer Campbell.
