Paint It Black

Steel Pulse, back in 1978, when I saw them live for the first time
The best reggae band on the planet, Steel Pulse, have released a new single. "Paint It Black is a song that is dedicated to the hundredth anniversary of Rosa Parks but also serves as a testimony of the African diaspora that have survived Western world society," said lead man David Hinds. I first saw Steel Pulse perform in 1978 and I'm still one of their biggest fans. A new album is scheduled for later this year, their first new studio release since 2004 which was African Holocaust, as is a documentary about their long career that;s also been in the works for a while now.
