(Kingston, Jamaica) With a career spanning more than 20 years, Jamaica’s acclaimed lovers rock singer Singing Melody on September 14th reintroduced himself to fans in a big way with the premier of the first official single from his soon to be released album “They Call Me Mr. Melody“. Produced by Lynford “Fatta” Marshall the new single entitled “Collide” will lead the way for the highly anticipated 13 track album which the man best known for hits such as “Want You Back” and “Say What” has been working on since the start of the year.
According to Melody the song which was demoed two years ago was a perfect fit for the album and a wonderful gift to the fans who will buy it. “Collide is an amazing song that tells a story of a couple who are in love but have problems communicating and that drives them apart but eventually they reunite. Two years ago Fatta came to me to do that song and I ended up doing a demo for it but never completing the project until recently. Initially I didn’t want to put a cover song on this album but I have some of the most loyal fans in the business who have stayed with me and supported me over the years and so I decided to give my them a gift in the form of a Free single thus Colliding or reuniting with my fans”.
A reoccurring choice amongst invited guest at a private Listening Session for the album held in August at the Mixing Lab Studios in Kingston Jamaica, “Collide” is a testimony to the new image and sound Melody has been developing with the help of his Management and Marketing team who are committed to making “They Call Me Mr. Melody” one of the best reggae albums of 2012. According to Ruby Robinson, President of Shem Music Productions “We are really happy with the product and so too are many industry veterans who have openly lauded the efforts of Melody on a job well done”.
With plans to shoot a video for “Collide” already in the pipeline Singing Melody is now gearing up for a rigorous promotional campaign aimed at re-branding the singers image to include that of a younger audience while maintaining the sheer sophistication of a true pioneer.
