Ska legend NEVILLE STAPLE and his wife Sugary have announced a new single to coincide with their dates with THE UNDERTONES.

'Working Hard Everyday' follows on from recent single 'Put Away Your Knives' and the album Rude Rebels, featuring Neville's Specials cohort Roddy Radiation.

Neville and Sugary Staple co-wrote 'Working Hard Everyday' with Charlie Organaire (aka Charles Cameron), best friend and colleague to ska pioneer Prince Buster. He was involved in many of the legend’s hit songs, as well as writing his own music and working with Prince Buster's son Sultan.

Out now, the single is available to stream and download here.
