Info for In Search Of Lost Time
Protoje, one of Jamaica's most important music figures in front and behind the scenes, will return with arguably his biggest album to date.
His fifth studio album is on the heels of his first GRAMMY nomination for Best Reggae Album in 2019 for A Matter Of Time, his first riddim production Rock & Groove, a recent guest feature on Alicia Keys' Underdog remix and a major label record deal partnership with his label and artist management company In.Digg.Nation Collective and RCA Records in 2020.
The forthcoming album is a marked departure from his previous releases and showcases a wider range of collaborations with balanced display of musicianship. The "reggae revival" contemporary colors outside the lines for a cinematic, multi-genre, stadium level LP. Hip Hop and reggae has always heavily influenced his sound, but he raises the bar by merging these two worlds with a variety of key players on both sides. Protoje co-produces many of the tracks, and he also taps Supa Dups (the multi-platinum producer behind timeless songs for Drake, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj and John Legend), his resident beatsmith Winta James, Jamaica’s go-to hit-maker Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor and more. Vocalists from Wiz Khalifa, Koffee, Popcaan and Lila Iké also join in on this razor-sharp diverse 10-track release. Protoje shared the album's first reveal Same So, "a relaxed, chilled-out dose of modern-sounding reggae" (Brooklyn Vegan), on July 16th and today Like Royalty to give fans a taste of what is to come.
"In Search Of Lost Time" follows his fourth studio album A Matter of Time (released in 2018 via Mr. Bongo Worldwide Ltd. / Easy Star Records), which resulted in Protoje’s first GRAMMY nomination for Best Reggae Album and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Reggae Album chart. Protoje rallied Winta James (the same beatmaker behind his breakthrough album Ancient Future) for a genre-bending creation. Songs like Blood Money, Bout Noon, No Guarantee feat Chronixx and Like This rose to popularity. He landed features in Rolling Stone and Vogue and his debut U.S. national TV performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in May 2019. As one of the leaders of the "reggae revival" movement (VOGUE), Protoje continues to build his presence as a musical icon. When Jamaican newcomer Koffee shouted him out as one of her idols on her debut single Toast (now over 125m views), it only solidified his position further as a household name in music. But what some may not know, Protoje is also a pioneering force right now within the music industry. From an entrepreneurial perspective, the musician started his own management and record label In.Digg.Nation Collective. This year, he signed a major deal with RCA Records in partnership with Six Course Records. With RCA Records, Protoje releases his own albums along with music from rising female artists Lila Iké and Sevana. New material has just rolled out from Lila Iké and Sevana, and Protoje will round out the trifecta with his upcoming album In Search Of Lost Time, chock full of feel-good vibes for this summer.
Born and raised in Saint Elizabeth, Jamaica to singer Lorna Bennett and former calypso king Mike Ollivierre, Protoje blends hip hop, soul and even orchestral jazz into his native sounds of reggae and dancehall. The musical prodigy hailing from Jamaica, along with a collective of fellow artists, began getting mainstream attention for their addictive melodies and conscious lyrical messages in a movement dubbed the "Reggae Revival." Publications such as VOGUE, Rolling Stone, The FADER, and PAPER have declared him one of the brightest talents out of Jamaica. His catalog thus far consists of four studio albums: Seven Year Itch (2011), The 8 Year Affair (2013), Ancient Future (2015) and A Matter Of Time (2018).
As a producer, he receives a co-credit for Rock & Groove Riddim (2019). The success of his latest fourth studio album A Matter of Time earned him his first GRAMMY nomination for Best Reggae Album and his national U.S. TV debut performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. He has toured with Lauryn Hill and appeared on major festivals including Coachella, Glastonbury, Afropunk, Reading, & Leeds and Lollapalooza Chile, reaching audiences far and wide with his genre-fusing sound.
