JIMMY CLIFF

For Immediate Release:

 

JIMMY CLIFF ANNOUNCES UK TOUR DATES & NEW ALBUM

 

"Reggae king Jimmy Cliff takes back his crown…Cliff cuts his best music in decades.” Rolling Stone

"Since 1972…Cliff has established himself as one of the most important — and profoundly influential — reggae artists ever to emerge from Jamaica.”- Stereogum

They say the world is spinning around -I say the world is upside down” Jimmy Cliff

 

 

Following his legendary appearance at Glastonbury Festival last year, Jimmy Cliff is set to return to the UK playing London’s indigO2 on May 18th and the Birmingham Ballroom on May 20th.

 

Singer, songwriter, musician and actor, Jimmy Cliff will be performing all of his greatest hits including “You Can Get It If You Really Want”, “The Harder they Come” (soundtrack to the film in which Jimmy starred) and “Many Rivers To Cross”.   The shows precede the release of his much-anticipated new album RE.BIRTH due this summer.

 

 

With a legacy stretching back nearly 50 years, the Honorable Jimmy Cliff is still standing as one of the prime movers and continuing shapers of modern music. With a catalogue that ranks among the most influential in global culture, Cliff  remains a forceful voice of power and conscience, creating new music as vital and vibrant as ever. Teamed with producer Tim Armstrong – the Rancid front man who has cited Cliff as his most admired artist – Cliff is set to release ‘RE.BIRTH’ his first full length album in seven years, a set which builds on his unparalleled history and points to a wide open future.
