UB40 have begun previewing tracks from their forthcoming country-influenced reggae album "Getting Over The Storm."
The album, which has taken much longer to record than either the band or their fan base have expected will finally be released on August 5th. The band was slated to kick off a UK tour in mid-June, but postponed the shows to September in order to focus in finishing the album.
Today the band released a 30 second snippet of a cover of the Allman Brothers song "Midnight Rider" on Soundcloud. The band posted the following message of their Facebook page promising to unveil a new song each week:
Apologies to all for the interminable delay in the release of our new album, "Getting Over The Storm". It really is beyond our control!Have a listen to the track below:
So, while you wait we've decided to frustrate you further by tantalising your lugholes with 30 second snippets of our new tracks, a new taster will be uploaded every week.
