Stephen Marley is set to return to the road next month in support of his brand new album, Old Soul, touring it across North America.
The run of shows will kick off in Indianapolis, IN, on September 8 and run through October 22, when it wraps in Atlanta, GA. Mike Love will serve as the tour’s special guest on select dates from October 12 to the end of the run.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased via Marley’s official website.
Old Soul marks the musician’s first full-length project since 2016 and is his highly-anticipated fifth solo album. The release leans into his strengths of live performance and spontaneity, opening him up as an artist as never before.
Marley is aided on Old Soul by a raft of exciting names, from Eric Caption and Bob Weir to Jack Johnson and Buju Banton. His brother Ziggy and half-brother Damian “Jr. Gong” also appear on the record alongside Slightly Stoopid.
Old Soul was previewed last week by the instant grat track “Cool As The Breeze,” which finds him singing sweetly: “You’re with me everyday/You’re never far away/Smiling ‘cause you please/You’re just as cool as the breeze.”
Written through nightly jam sessions on a remote family farm in the Florida countryside during the COVID lockdown, Old Soul encompasses everything from original compositions and reggae rarities to classics by Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, and The Beatles that are loaded with personal meaning. Among the tracklist is also a cover of his dad Bob’s classic song “I Shot The Sheriff.”
“You have to be true to yourself,” Marley said of the record’s variety. “I refuse to be put into any category. I am inspired by everything. So if I feel like I want to play some jazz music, I will go play some jazz music. Who dig it, dig it.”
