'Mañana', Mellow Mood's sixth album
Mellow Mood release their sixth album, Mañana. Written and recorded between 2020 and the beginning of 2022, it collects 12 tracks, including 7 international collaborations. Multiple singles anticipated the album's release. They are Mr Global ft. Kabaka Pyramid, Laser Sight, Blessings On Me, I And I Chant ft. Emeterians - and its subsequent remix with the voices of Anthony B and Alborosie - My Bed ft. Konshens and Make It Better ft. Iya Terra.
The album opens with Dub Jah Bless, which represents the sonic intention of the whole album - with solid bass lines, well chosen arrangements and a powerful sound.
Promise, which like My Bed is something of a musical exception from the rest of the album, moves into more electronic territories. It creates a gospel atmosphere, as Mellow Mood work with a real choir for the first time.
Another song of hope and positivity is Sweet Like Honey, born from reflections on the last two years, the lockdowns and the suspension of normal life.
In My Town closes the album as it started, with a big bad reggae riddim.
Recorded, mixed and produced by Paolo Baldini Dubfiles, Mañana (La Tempesta Dub / Ineffable Records) is available on CD, vinyl and on all digital platforms.
