UB40 are back with a various international guest artists on their new album. “Bigga Baggariddim” totally reworks UB40’s 20th studio album “For The Many” which was released in March, 2019.
Production work continued remotely during Covid-19 lockdowns and features new UB40 collaborations with artists from around the world.
In a movie-style video to promote UB40’s latest single, Matt Doyle – the nephew of percussionist Norman Hassan – is seen guesting on lead vocals while driving a classic R-reg Ford Granada Ghia around the Digbeth area of Birmingham where UB40 used to record.
The video also features Matt putting on sunglasses after walking outside from the Hare & Hounds in Kings Heath where UB40 played their first gig on February 9, 1979.
The band will also be heading to Lingfield Park Resort for a huge outdoor gig this summer, on July 31. Tickets are available here.
