Duckie Simpson sings lead on the next Black Uhuru album

Duckie Simpson will be the lead vocalist on the forthcoming Black Uhuru album.

As The World Turns, this is the name of the new Black Uhuru album. Its release is scheduled for the month of October on No Joke Entertainment.

This one will be the first since Dynasty released in 2001, and it’s Duckie Simpson who will be the lead vocalist.

Even if the band has known different formations, Black Uhuru is a live legend of reggae music.
The group was formed in 1974 in Jamaica by Euvin "Don Carlos" Spencer, Rudolph "Garth" Dennis, and Derrick "Duckie" Simpson. Don Carlos left the band to pursue a solo career and Garth Dennis joined The Wailing Souls. Alone, Duckie Simpson was joined by Michael Rose, Errol "Jay" Wilson and the Sly and Robbie duo. They released their first album Love Crisis in 1977. When Sandra "Puma" Jones joined the group in 1978 replacing Errol Wilson, their best albums were released as Showcase, Sinsemilia, Red and Anthem. In 1984, Michael Rose left the band too and was soon replaced by Junior Reid. Black Uhuru, with the bobo as lead vocal released two albums, Brutal and Positive before he also left the band. Because of quarrels, the group teared up then reformed. That’s why, after reintegrating the band, Don Carlos then Andrew Bees definitively left the band.

Michael Rose returned five years ago and has toured Europe and Africa with Duckie Simpson. But now, Michael is concentrating on his own career.

We will keep you informed about this great news in a few weeks.
