The album stays true to the artist’s signature sound, a blend of authentic Roots Rock Reggae and Dub with supreme songwriting skills and lyrical prowess.

Despite the allure of virality, Alborosie rejects it for himself, choosing substance over gimmickry. The track is mixed and produced in Albo’s classic vintage style, with heavyweight bass, crisp drums and sirens and effects echoing off into the abyss.
Destiny boasts an impressive list of collaborators with featured guest performances from such luminaries as Kabaka Pyramid, Buju Banton, Jaz Elise and Burro Banton to name but a few. Exploring themes of faith, life, love and the power of music, Albo presents a body of work that is relatable and humble, stating “I cannot make music that reflects the non-relevant. My Reggae should relate to the present…”
