Cooking Vinyl has signed DJ and film maker Don Letts to release his debut solo album.

“It’s taken a bit of time to create this soundtrack to my mind but with the help of a few friends, some heavy bass lines and a record label with taste the dread stands firm”, says Letts.

Cooking Vinyl Manager Director Rob Collins adds: “Don Letts has been ever present in my life since I was a sixteen year old kid at the Roxy being turned on to reggae and heavy dub. Now to work with him after 47 years is extraordinary. This is one of those records that makes it all worthwhile”.

With the album still in production, it is currently scheduled for release in the spring next year. Exactly who the “few friends” Letts has roped in to help him make it are is yet to be announced, but we do know that the whole thing is being produced by Gaudi.
