Protoje Announces New Album
A Matter Of Time, Out June 29, 2018
New Single "No Guarantee" feat. Chronixx +
Album Pre-Order Available Now at Protoje.com
U.S. Tour Kicks Off May 19
Known for his complex, blistering lyrics addressing various societal injustices, delivered in hypnotic chanted-sung vocals, reggae artist Protoje will release A Matter of Time, the long awaited followup to his acclaimed 2015 album Ancient Future, on June 29.
A Matter Of Time is Protoje's fourth full-length album. The ten track LP, produced by Winta James, marks the second consecutive album collaboration between the two following the genre-bending Ancient Future, which signaled in 2015 the advent of a fresh reinvention within the reggae space. On this latest project, the duo continue to channel a wide array of styles and sounds, from traditional Jamaican sounds to hip-hop, jazz, and rock, into a cohesive and original whole. A Matter Of Time ventures into new territory as much as it reaches back to it’s roots, maintaining the essence of Jamaican music whilst pushing the envelope in multiple new directions.
With the inclusion of previously released tracks “Blood Money” (hailed by Jamaican Radio Personality and Pan African Activist Mutaburuka as the number one reggae song of 2017), “Truths & Rights” featuring rising crooner Mortimer, and “Bout Noon”, much anticipation has hung in the air for the album’s release.
Protoje and Chronixx will join forces for a massive show in Brooklyn, NY at Coney Island’s Ford Amphitheater on May 27, part of the first leg of Protoje’s U.S. tour which kicks off May 19 in Miami. Then, he heads to Europe for a full schedule of summer festivals and shows.

Reggae phenom Protoje debuts the animated lyric video for his latest love stricken tune, “Bout Noon,” on VIBE.com today (Feb 23). Produced by Winta James and Lamont “Monty” Savory, the addictive track leads the charge for Pro’s forthcoming fourth studio album.
“I wrote this song on a flight home after an extensive summer of touring,” says Protoje about the groovy new song. “I was looking forward to being home, in my house, with my lady and family. I think everybody can relate to missing someone or something. This song can be something you groove to as you make your way back to that.”
Protoje’s new LP will serve as his first full length solo project since 2015’s Ancient Futurerelease. The Jamaican star also plans to hit the road once again this summer on a slew of festival and pop-up concert dates
