The new UB40 album is out now!

UB40 is known for their hits like "Red Red Wine", "Falling In Love With You", "Kingstontown", "I Got You Babe" and many more. The British reggae band sold over 100 million records worldwide and after 45 years of UB40 the band releases their anniversary album "UB45".

Over the course of 45 years, UB40 have garnered over 100 million album sales, 50 UK Top 40 singles and 10 UK Top 10 albums. The band has stood the test of time, touring the world together and recording musics hot through with an unbreakable bond, fostered by their long-standing friendships and shared Birmingham roots. The line-up proudly boasts all but one of the surviving founding members, now bolstered by the reinvigorating presence of vocalist Matt Doyle.

UB40 released three singles off the album, "Give Me Some Kinda Sign", "Home" and "Forever True". Now it's time for the entire "UB45" album!

“For more than 40 years, we’ve been one of the hardest working touring bands in pop music,” says guitarist/vocalist and UB40 co- founder Robin Campbell, who along with Jimmy Brown (drums), Earl Falconer (bass, vocals) and Norman Hassan (percussion, trombone, vocals), have been the core of the band for its entire ever-evolving history. “We aim to have a party every show. As much as we’ve enjoyed our Zoom chats during lockdown, there’s no substitute for the relationship and synergy we have with our live audiences.”

Lead singer Matt Doyle joined the band in 2021 when he was a member of the popular Birmingham reggae band KIOKO – taking over for Duncan Campbell, UB40’s lead singer since 2008 who retired after suffering a stroke. UB40 first got wind of the magic Doyle brings to the stage as a singer and performer when KIOKO opened for them in 2018 at The Royal Albert Hall and supported UB40 on their subsequent UK and European tours. Says Campbell, “Watching Matt standing there in the middle of the stage like a rabbit in headlights, full of shock and awe that he’s playing with a band he loved growing up, was simply fantastic but now his confidence has grown, and he’s settled into the job with consummate ease.”
