4

Congratulations to Etana on the November 1st birth of her daughter Nyla, the inspiration for her forthcoming album “Better Tomorrow.” The hit single from the album is entitled “Reggae.”

Soulful reggae singer, Etana releases the EP titled, Reggae on November 13. This three-track treat is an appetizer to her highly anticipated third album, A Better Tomorrow. The VP Records upcoming album is scheduled to arrive just in time for Black History Month, February 2013. The EP is now available on I-tunes and features the title track, Reggae, A Better Tomorrow and Foreplay To Love (Start Over). Etana thrills on all three compositions, with each reflecting different aspects of her undeniable talent.

Etana Reggae Ep cover

1. Reggae

Recording reggae was amazing, I could feel the passion, it was like making love to the music. I was engulfed in the rhythms from the drums, the bass and the guitar, they all brought on a sense of bringing new to life to the world”, says Etana. The intimate love ballad is slow, soft and seductive. The songstress smoothly puts a witty play on her words to express a raging love for the enthralling genre of music.

2. A Better Tomorrow

The title track for Etana’s upcoming third album is a definite preview of what is to come in a few months. The catchy mid tempo piece is inspirational and right up the songbird’s alley. Motivating, uplifting and purely positive lyrics flow from her crystal clear chords. As she belts each note you can feel her emotions blaring through the speakers. Etana was compelled to write this song after watching two young children in a documentary visit a dump to source food on a daily basis. The story brought the singer to tears, this pain encouraged her to pen each line on finding a brighter future for A better Tomorrow.

3. Foreplay To Love (Start Over)

A come clean story which many can relate to. “Lets start over , found a love that’s new, you’re not my only lover”, Etana croons of a love triangle she wants a second chance at making right. This confessional will appeal to many as it portrays a realistic dynamic of life.

These three tracks are fulfilling, yet they will enhance that crave for Etana’s full disc. The Free singer is ready to return to Centre stage and available for bookings starting December 1st.  Freemind music is her exclusive booking agent for more info visit www.EtanaThestrongOne.com

He was the lead singer, songwriter and guitarist for the ska, rocksteady and reggae bands The Wailers (1964–1974) and Bob Marley & The Wailers (1974–1981). Bob Marley died at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Miami on the morning of May 11, 1981, at the age of 36.
