Eleven years ago, Damian Marley released Welcome to Jamrock, the Gold-certified winner of the 2006 Best Reggae Album Grammy, with its powerfully gritty title track winning the Best Urban/Alternative performance Grammy, a first for a Jamaican artist. Since then, Damian’s busy schedule has included recording the SuperHeavy album as a member of a short lived supergroup that included Mick Jagger and Joss Stone and working with Nas on the critically lauded Distant Relatives.

Now, the reggae scion is prepping Welcome to Jamrock’s much-anticipated follow up, his largely self-produced fourth studio album, Stony Hill, which is scheduled for an Oct. 28 release. Stony Hill’s first single, the urgent “Nail Pon Cross,” debuts today on Billboard and is streaming exclusively on Tidal, where Damian is one of several artists/co-owners.
