New Zealand reggae and soul shakers to release Dust And Dirt in North America on 4/10. Two of their catalog albums to be available in the U.S. for the first time.

New Zealand’s reggae-soul heavyweights The Black Seeds return with their highly anticipated new studio album Dust And Dirt, which is set for release in North America on April 10th through trailblazing label Easy Star Records.

“Pippy Pip,” the bubbly, upbeat first single, was built by layering over a demo that had such a cool vibe that they never re-recorded the original parts. The song is currently available for a limited time as a free download from www.theblackseeds.com, and you can watch the video below.

Dust And Dirt is the fifth studio album from the multi-platinum selling group whose unique brand of reggae-funk fusion has seen their fan base spread around the world in recent years.

It follows up The Black Seeds‘ critically acclaimed 2009 album Solid Ground, which was hailed as “…a damn fine record…thick, bottom-heavy, and melodic” by The Huffington Post and “…the forefront of reggae today and tomorrow” by JamBase.  The album debuted in the top 15 on the Billboard Reggae Chart, spent 8 consecutive weeks in the Top 10 of CMJ’s World Music Chart, and also spent five weeks in the overall CMJ Top 200. Easy Star will be re-issuing The Black Seeds‘ celebrated back catalog on the same day, with two of the titles (On The Sun and Into The Dojo) seeing their first-ever physical release on the continent.

“Working in our own studio gave us the freedom to get the best out of ourselves over a longer period of time, and to trial new techniques and tones with our own Mike Fabulous at the controls,”says singer/guitarist Barnaby Weir.

With their upcoming North American tour kicking off this week, The Black Seeds you don’t miss them in a city near you!
