Fueled by the classic reggae spirit that powered UB40’s original incarnation to worldwide success, the contemporary band fronted by founding members Ali Campbell and Astro are now planning their next move. As the most authentic expression of the Birmingham band’s original aims, Ali and Astro continue to curate and build on a legacy that dates back over four decades to the group’s formative days, and the coming year will see the release of a new studio album and a major tour. Despite seeing their plans for 2020 thwarted by a global pandemic, they are now primed to make the most of the momentum that saw their last tour visit the world’s biggest venues and their last album, 2018’s A Real Labour Of Love, narrowly miss out on topping the UK charts.

The combination of Ali and Astro is key to the band’s wide appeal. The duo augment one another superbly, with Ali’s smooth, melodic voice – which Astro describes as being ‘like a fine wine’ – a contrast to his partner’s ‘sing-jay’ style. Backed by a seven-piece band, UB40 with Ali and Astro have become a formidable touring outfit. The Real Labour Of Love tour in 2019 visited Australia, New Zealand, Europe and America and even stopped off for a show on Rarotonga, an island in the South Pacific. The start of 2020 had been busy, too. With this year marking the 40th anniversary of UB40’s debut single “King / Food For Thought” and the band’s debut album Signing Off, the band played gigs in Brazil, the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico before the entire live circuit ground to a halt in spring.

They’ve been active during the enforced hiatus, though. As well as writing songs for their forthcoming album, Ali and Astro reassembled the touring band remotely to record a lockdown single, a poignant cover of the late Bill Withers’ “Lean On Me,” in aid of NHS Charities Together. The release was accompanied by a socially distanced home video that featured guests Suggs, Jools Holland, Sir Cliff Richard, Shaun and Bez of the Happy Mondays, Kurupt FM, Lynval Golding of the Specials, Big Narstie, Frank Benbini of Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Phil Daniels, Scarlett Moffatt, Mo Gilligan and a cast of key workers.
