Following up on the Easy Star All-Stars hugely successful reggae tribute albums of Dub Side of the Moon (2003), Radiodread (2006) and Easy Star’s Lonely Hearts Dub Band (2009) comes the reggae adaptation of the greatest selling record of all time: Michael Jackson’s Thriller. The album, titled Easy Star’s Thrillah, drops on August 28, 2012 (a day before the 53rd anniversary of Jackson’s birth). Easy Star’s Thrillah brings back several of the reggae stars from previous albums, such as vocalists Michael Rose (Black Uhuru), Steel Pulse, Luciano, Mojo Morgan (Morgan Heritage), alongside the diverse playing of guests Yossi Fine (David Bowie, Lou Reed, Stanley Jordan), Joe Tomino (Dub Trio/Matisyahu), Andy Farag (Umphrey’s McGee), and horn tracks courtesy of Israel’s highly-acclaimed funk/hip-hop band Hadag Nachash. The album is preceded by the digital release of the Billie Jean EP, which includes two album tracks, along with non-album remixes and a dub version.

The band is looking forward to bringing this music on the road, adding some dance/pop songs to their already varied sets. An extensive fall tour of the US and UK is already set up, with more to come over the next year.

    weak and vibeless MJ covers from Easy Star All-stars, i’ve enjoyed their previous efforts but this is just one big disappointment.

    Gentle touch on Qunicy Jones stuff but except the outstanding afro beat cover of ‘’Wanna Be Starting Something’’ didn’t found so exceptional the other stuff.
