If there’s one thing good that has come out of the Corona Virus pandemic it’s been some great new music. Today we bring you a new single and video release, “Lockdown” from 2Tone Legend, Neville Staple (The Specials, Fun Boy Three, Special Beat)

With a sound similar to The Specials fantastic track, “Ghost Town”. This track will get you moving. I’m picking this one up on 7″.

“Sugary came up with the idea to write a song about the lockdown, which, at first, was a very fast-stomping ska track. We then realised that it was too fun and happy a tune for the theme. Most of us have been quite down about the whole virus thing, so we decided to take it on a more sweet but moody 2Tone reggae route, in a similar vein to ‘Ghost Town’, with some music we had worked on previously with Sledge (Steve Armstrong),” says Neville Staple.
