Third World singer Bunny Ruggs releases his latest solo album, Time, today. He says the 15-track set does not mean he is leaving the band.
"Third World has been and will always be my main focus, but I have always been doing individual projects over the years," he said.
Time was slated for release in June 2011 but Ruggs said he delayed it to avoid a clash of dates with Third World's album, Patriots.
Time is released on Ruggs' Raw Edge Productions label and distributed by VPAL, a subsidary of VP Records. It features Land We Love, a tribute to Jamaica's 50th year of Independence. Other tracks include Kurfew, Love is Blind, You're my Everything, and Thinking About You.
Among the musicians and producers who worked on the project are Sly and Robbie, Dean Fraser, Mikey Bennett, Dean Pond, Rohan Dwyer, and Steven Stanley.
Ruggs' previous album, The Voice, was released in 2008.
