Neville Stable From The Specials & Beyond
Neville Stable – From The Specials & Beyond

Former member of The Specials Neville Staple has announced his latest solo album, From The Specials & Beyond.

The record will find the 66-year-old ska veteran revisiting the songs of his past, and includes collaborations with Staple’s wife and co-vocalist Sugary Staple, reggae artist Clint Eastwood, Quadrophenia actor Gary Shail, rocksteady legend Derrick Morgan and founding Selector member Neol Davies.

“This has been one of my favourite albums to work on,” Staple said in a press release. “Each song has a special and personal meaning to me. I wanted to celebrate the roots of my own music journey, with 2 Tone being at the forefront of each song, in the sound and in the lyrics.

“Stomping music, with sometimes serious commentary, but all presented in a fun, danceable, singalong spirit. That’s the 2 Tone way. Our way. And the special guests were amazing to work with too, especially Derrick Morgan, one of my early inspirations.

“With superb contributions from Sugary and the band, plus other star guests, this album is set to be a real ‘stand out’ one, that makes me proud of my career to date.”
