Grammy-nominated recording artist, activist, filmmaker, and writer, John Forté has announced his new full-length album due out on October 22 via Ram Dass’ Soul Land Records. It will feature guest appearances by Rising Appalachia, Ben Taylor, Billy Woods, Fielded, Everlast, Ram Dass and more.
On August 17th John Forté unveiled the lead single “Ready on the One” alongside a video created by Brandshop. Produced by Preservation and featuring contributions from Spills, Five and Miss Brittany Reese, the track presents Forté’s impassioned delivery over a low-slung beat dotted with hand bells and sly guitar licks. “It sets us up for the narrative that takes place throughout the album,” Forté explains; and the accompanying ”Ready on the One” video gives the viewer a window into Forté’s life – from his cannabis garden in Martha’s Vineyard to his hometown of Brooklyn.
