Release New Album



the black seeds


“A broad, vastly creative return, with The Black Seeds matching low-end weight against some mature, soulful songwriting.” 
– Clash

“Irresistible grooves and a kickass attitude to match” 
– The AU Review


The Black Seeds long-awaited sixth studio album, Fabricand their first album in over five years, is out today via Remote Control.

This year, the South Pacific reggae-soul legends have shared the length and breadth of their luscious and diverse new album – including the anthemic summer tune ‘Better Days’ the dance heavy ‘Freakin’ and their brand new track ‘Back To You.’ Created with the support of NZ On Air and recorded at Lee Prebble’s Wellington studio The Surgery, Fabric is a twelve-track album of bold, groove-heavy tunes that perfectly captures The Black Seeds’ characteristic brand of reggae-funk fusion.

Musically, there is a grand expansiveness that sets over the collective of tracks on Fabric, allowing for each song to breathe and exist on its own, but also comfortably within the context of the wider picture. In other words, it is a prolific and multi-faceted mix of moods, feelings and stylistic influences, all brought together by the core reggae sound of The Black Seeds.

Overall Fabric shows The Black Seeds’ limitless creative energy for what it is – always moving forward and progressing without compromising the soul of who they are, while always remaining conscious of the current world around them.

Known for an electrifying live show, and having just returned from a successful tour of Canada & the US, The Black Seeds are set to play 8 dates across the Tasman. Full tour dates and ticket links are below
