Stephen has been building anticipation for this release for some time. Riding on the high of single releases like Queen Ifrica’s ‘Four Women’ in April of 2021, and Etana’s ‘Young Gifted And Black’ in February of this year. 

In a press release announcing the EP, Marley says of his latest body of work: “This project is about preserving Nina Simone’s legacy, passing it on to younger generations, including my children, because you don’t often find music this substantial. When we started this project, we reached out to Nina’s daughter (Lisa Simone Kelly) and to the Nina Simone Foundation to establish a connection; we want to donate a portion of proceeds to the things that she was all about.”
