Sing­er-song­writer Natty announces new album Release The Fear to be released to all digit­al plat­forms for stream on 27 Septem­ber 2017 along­side a brand new UK tour this Nov-Dec. The new album was recor­ded with newly-estab­lished band The Rebel­ship, and blends Afric­an beats, acous­tic sounds, ana­logue sound­scapes and soar­ing melod­ies, coupled with Natty’s enlight­en­ing lyr­ics. Natty describes the album as a ‘self-pro­duced labour of love’. Album track ‘Sea­sons Change’ ft Alborosie and Busy Sig­nal will be released along­side the stream via an offi­cial video cre­ated by Bashart Malik. The single pack­age also fea­tures a spe­cial remix fea­tur­ing Akala, Mic Right­eous & Raspect Fyabinghi.

Natty explains the release is an auto­bi­o­graph­ic­al con­cept album that stands as an import­ant part of his jour­ney, he hopes it will also serve as a source of inspra­tion and strength to the listen­er. “Stand up in Love (as opposed to fall), Giv­ing thanks for life (I’m Alive) and many oth­er tracks all are pil­lars with­in the Release the Fear state-of-mind.”

San Fran­cis­co born, Lon­don raised artist Natty is a treas­ured icon of the UK’s music scene. Since explod­ing onto the scene via Atlantic Records in 2008 with his debut album Man Like I, Natty has been enter­tain­ing a loy­al and ever-grow­ing fan base of people from all walks of life.  Its suc­cess cap­tiv­ated the atten­tion of the UK, and the rest of the world, the single ‘Bad­man’ was a num­ber 1 hit in Japan. He was dubbed a ‘soul-reg­gae cros­sov­er sen­sa­tion’ by The Tele­graph. His live per­form­ances have taken him all around the world. Natty says: “Bring­ing people joy and heal­ing has been my greatest work”.

Per­form­ing on Later with Jools Hol­land, the ITV News and The BBC Elec­tric Proms are among­st some of the TV high­lights of Natty’s career. Artist col­lab­or­a­tions include work with Nit­in Sawhney, Roots Manuva, Tony Allen, Prince Fatty, Baba Maal, and Akala, which also led to tour­ing with Ziggy Mar­ley around USA, play­ing an unau­thor­ised head­line show in front of thou­sands in Khar­toum, Sudan and per­form­ing in the U.N build­ing (New York City) on World Human­it­ari­an Day. Natty pro­duces his own live music events under the monik­er Vibes and Pres­sure.

Aside from his music­al career, Natty has spent much time writ­ing, trav­el­ling, and meet­ing with spir­itu­al lead­ers in Africa and South Amer­ica. He is involved with an orphan­age in Gam­bia, as well as vari­ous com­munity pro­jects in South­ern Africa and Lon­don.  “Becom­ing an inde­pend­ent artist was a big step in 2012, and then trav­el­ling to Africa, Jamaica and oth­er parts of the world and get­ting in touch with the things that I was writ­ing about, but may­be hadn’t really lived and things that I couldn’t have ima­gined. I spent a lot of time vis­it­ing Rasta eld­ers, Amazon sham­ans, Afric­an spir­itu­al eld­ers and sac­red sites. My time in Africa also led to my becom­ing involved with the erasefoundation.org. To date we have built four schools and one  orphan­age that cur­rently homes 60 chil­dren.”

Natty’s latest pro­ject ‘The Sac­red Jour­ney’ invites 8 people to join him on a jour­ney of a life­time to the Amazon rain­forest in Brazil this Novem­ber, cul­min­at­ing in a live per­form­ance out under the stars. This trip is aimed at people who are already on (or start­ing) a jour­ney of self-dis­cov­ery and want to con­nect with nature, the ways of the ancient people and con­nect with these words: Release the Fear.
