EXTRA EXTRA read all about it, this is the news and we’re here to shout it!
SSHH (The Band) is back with the electrifying new video, “Extra Extra” featuring Brazilian hip hop icon BNegão. The instant connection and chemistry between SSHH and BNegão made it clear that a musical collaboration was inevitable and has come to fruition in the form of the Electronic, Afrobeat pop song, “Extra Extra.”
Launching in Brazil with live shows in Rio, São Paulo and Salvador, 2020 is going to see the force of nature that is SSHH with mighty music and righteous anarchy.
In an age when the worlds answers are at our fingertips, why is it still so difficult to find out fact from fiction? How has the truth become so tainted, “fake news “ being blamed for everything from climate change to rape allegations.
But when real news, such as the savage Australian bushfires that have been ripped through 8 million hectares and counting. Killing a BILLION animals AND COUNTING! THIS IS THE NEWS! It’s time to face it. Our house is on fire. There will be a dedicated percentage of proceeds going to charitable foundations.
Lyrically ambiguous and sonically political, “Extra Extra” is an observation of the extremist ‘fake news’.
Sshh says, “In a world where we have unlimited information at our fingertips, the truth has been tainted with misdirection and censorship of inconvenient news. It’s time to stand up, work together to bring forth a new age of truth.”
Launched in 2019, the new record label Trojan Jamaica, founded by Zak Starkey and Sharna Sshh Liguz, released the compilation, Red, Gold, Green & Blue, which reached the top ten on Billboard’s Reggae chart. With glowing reviews from publications such as Rolling Stone and Riddim Magazine, and high rotation on BBC radio and SiriusXM, it was a good year for great music.
It was on a promotional tour in Brazil where the duo met Brazilian hip-hop legend BNegão (Planet Hemp). BNegão is a huge talent with a masterful ability to combine multiple styles for most excellent results. Planet Hemp, are like the Brazilian Cypress Hill with a touch of Rage Against The Machine.
Sshh adds, “BNegão has a righteous attitude and a sense of anarchy which is why we asked him to feature on the new single, “Extra Extra”… Hear all about it! THIS IS THE NEWS!”
