Following 2019’s critically acclaimed original album ‘For The Many,’ on 25th June, UB40 release Bigga Baggariddim, an incredible celebration of the genre they love, and a seminal reggae collaborations album.
Over 35 years after the original Baggariddim album, UB40 has reunited with artists who appeared on the 1985 album and collaborated with new, diverse reggae talent worldwide, who sing and deejay over cuts of the same rhythms. It was in cities like UB40’s hometown of Birmingham where people from different ethnic backgrounds first learned to live with one another, giving rise to multi-cultural Britain. It’s therefore natural for UB40 to collaborate with artists of differing nationalities, ages, and cultural backgrounds, as well as those sharing the same roots as themselves. The artists featured span four continents and seven decades of recording experience.
