Don Letts
  • Color: Green

Indie Exclusive on Limited Edition Green Vinyl.

From working with the likes of The Clash and Bob Marley to colliding genres with Big Audio Dynamite, still presenting his own radio show on BBC 6Music, winning a Grammy and receiving an honorary doctorate for his contribution to culture Don Letts appears to have done it all. Indeed along with the release of his best selling autobiography 'There and Black Again' last year and 'Rebel Dread' a film documenting his life released this year you'd be forgiven for thinking he had. But there's one thing the 66-year old polymath hasn't done... until now.

Outta Sync is Don Letts' debut album as a solo artist and is a heady cocktail of dubbed out bass heavy rhythms, island vibes n' spoken word juxtaposed with melodic hooks and harmonies. The album is exactly what you'd anticipate a Don Letts project to sound like. Featuring eleven mostly self-written tracks, 'Outta Sync' reflects his myriad tastes and interests, as well as his unique worldview. It also highlights an intriguing array of guests: the legendary Terry Hall of The Specials, The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne makes an appearance, as does lovers rock queen Hollie Cook. Don co-wrote the song 'Situationist' with Zoe Devlin Love, previously of Alabama 3. Keeping it in the family is Don's daughter Honor, who sings on the sitar-studded electronic groove 'Civilization'. Gaudi compliments all this playing piano and synthesisers across the entire album. Collectively it's a snapshot of who Don Letts really is in the here and now.
