Lee "Scratch" Perry: Rise Again

NEW ALBUM PRODUCED BY BILL LASWELL;
FEATURING TUNDE ADEBIMPE, BERNIE WORRELL, AND MORE

Lee "Scratch" Perry
As one of the most prolific, influential and irretrievably eccentric record producers ever, Lee "Scratch" Perry continues to reshape and refine an adventurous style all his own with his latest studio outing, Rise Again (Out May 10). A long-awaited collaboration with New York-based producer Bill Laswell (and a team of talented musicians), the album marks a milestone in the careers of both artists, arriving as it does on the heels of Perry's 75th birthday, and as a flagship release on Laswell's own M.O.D. Technologies imprint.

To mark the occasion, Laswell has recruited an A-list of talented musicians. This diverse line-up includes vocalists Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio), Gigi Shibabaw (whose Mesgana Ethiopia was released last year) and Hawkman (Method Of Defiance); P-Funk legend Bernie Worrell (keyboards); Peter Apfelbaum (tenor sax & flute); Steven Bernstein (trumpet); Josh Werner (bass); and Hamid Drake (drums).

Says Laswell, "It's a real production, and really conscious of bringing out Lee Perry. It's his presence that keeps this thing moving. Is the whole idea crazy? That's part of what makes it worth doing."
