Video Premiere: Calypso Rose - Calypso Queen

Effortless summer fire from the Calypso queen

Do you know how long Calypso Rose has been running the worldwise calypso scene? Honestly? Brace yourself. She dropped her first hit in 1955, aged 15. Yep, Calypso Rose, has been the queen of the scene for more than 60 years... That's roughly the same time it takes the Stone Roses to record three singles, and she's not done yet. It's hard not to have a huge respect for a woman who's carved out a career in music for longer than anyone writing for Ransom Note has been breathing, so we jumped at the chance to premiere her new track. There's no messing about with it, no ridiculous attempts to jazz up the sound with house beats, dodgy samples, or ill conceived guest spots. Instead Calypso Queen sees her effortlessly delivering the classic calypso sound that many have copied but few bettered. It's the first single taken from her forthcoming album Far From Home, released July 15th through Because Music- keep an eye on their website for more details, and enjoy the new track below,
