Feature: Bobby Alu – Ready For Your Love

Infused with reggae and soul Bobby Alu reveals his latest single ‘Ready For Your Love‘.

The release captures joyous harmonies with a feel-good rhythm and stripped-back production. Ready For Your Love embodies the reggae style ‘lovers rock’ popular in Jamaica in the late ’70s by artists like Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, Horace Andy, Alton Ellis, and John Holt.

A grand declaration of effortless love, “Imagine you’re a bird doing everything you can to impress your queen – build a beautiful nest, pump out your chest, sing your heart out,” Alu said of the track.

“The band and I love reggae from the 70’s and 80’s. This song was never planned. We were at the studio working on some other tracks. After dinner, we weren’t quite ready to finish. I showed them a chorus idea and we all jumped in bouncing ideas off one another.

I had recently had a conversation with a stranger about how they were looking for love desperately and this exchange inspired the lyrics. Hours passed, and we left that night with a new track in the bag. Spontaneous creative moments like this are some of my absolute favourite times in the studio. Time goes and you find your flow.

Bobby Alu‘s latest track ‘Ready For Your Love‘ is available to stream now.
