Reggae singer Etana is scheduled to release a 3-song preview from her upcoming studio album dubbed “Better Tomorrow”. This extended play (EP) effort titled “Reggae” is set for a November 13 release.
This is to give fans a taste of what is to come in February 2012 from her new album. The entire set is produced by Shane Brown with Stanley “Rellee” Hayden co-creating the title track. The record will be released digitally.
The charismatic singer, songwriter and performer incorporates elements of reggae, soul and pop into her captivating postmodern sound that tackles real life experiences. Etana’s unabashed romanticism shines on the soulful sway of “Reggae” and the R&B tinged “4 Play 2 Love (Start Over)” about her torn feelings of two lovers. The spine-chilling single “Better Tomorrow” addresses the atrocities of children in poverty-stricken communities, while instilling optimism for brighter days. Etana’s lyrical depth and revolutionary thought continue to impress and inspire her audience.
With a baby on the way, new EP and album in the works, Etana is in a place in her life where she looks forward to a promising future. She expands upon her 2010 sophomore album Free Expressions, which won praise for the being “a rarity: music that sermonizes, yet still sweetly serenades,” according to industry critics. The anticipated album Better Tomorrow and EP Reggae express a similar sentiment, while offering new-found wisdom and clarity.
