Jimmy Cliff New Album “Sacred Fire” Drop November 29

Reggae legend Jimmy Cliff returns to music spotlight with a new album titled Sacred Fire, due in store November 29.

Sacred Fire was produced by by Tim Armstrong, guitarist with ska/punk band Rancid and will be released by Collective Sounds.

Prior to the digital release of Sacred Fire, fans will be able to purchase a limited edition, colour-vinyl version of the album. That collection will be available on Friday and features the bonus track, World Upside Down.

In a recent interview, Cliff said working with Armstrong was a fulfilling experience.

“Tim has such a great foothold in the tradition,” Cliff told The Examiner newspaper of San Francisco. “He woke me up to a lot of the things I had forgotten. I enjoy the creative spontaneity of collaborating with other people — I always want to try new things.”

Armstrong said he equally respectful the reggae icon.

“This is Jimmy’s record. I’m honoured to be a part of it,” Armstrong said.

Though his tours still draw large crowds, Cliff has not had a hit album since the Grammy Award-winning Cliff Hanger of 1985. That album sold over 500,000 units and earned gold status.

Jimmy Cliff was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year
