During the course of Stephen Marley's well-decorated music career, he always had the idea for a solo album in the back of his mind. That vision is now a reality, with today's release of the genre-bending, mind-blowing Mind Control. And as Stephen revealed in an exclusive interview with BobMarley.com's Jen Gurny, he's stepping out from behind the studio control room and in front of the microphone at the right time.When asked what people can expect from Mind Control, Stephen echoed the sentiment of his famous father. "Positive music," he said with a smile. "Jah, light, hope, you know, good stuff like that."The album, which has already been lauded in early reviews from such industry stalwarts as Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, Spin, Time Out New York, Interviewand Performing Songwriter, mixes influences that Stephen soaked up during childhood while observing his legendary father with those he developed as producer for his Grammy-winning brother, "Jr. Gong," among others.There's a little bit of everything on Mind Control, including straight-up reggae that recalls classic Bob Marleytunes ("Chase Dem"), funky, hip-hop influenced and soul-infused love songs ("Hey Baby," with Mos Def), and a heaping helping of politically and socially oriented song craft (the title track plus the real-life story-telling trilogy of "Officer Jimmy Interlude," "The Traffic Jam" and "Iron Bars.")Stephen said he didn't set out to make the album a mishmash of all the sounds and ideas that flood his creative mind. It just worked out that way.Track Listing1. Mind Control 2. Hey Baby feat. Mos Def 3. Officer Jimmy (Interlude) 4. Iron Bars feat. Julian Marley, Mr. Cheeksand Spragga Benz5. Traffic Jam feat.
