But this track is no “Party All the Time.” Unlike the smooth R&B-pop stylings of his previous three music releases (or the aforementioned 1985 dance-pop smash), “Red Light” is full-on, Bob Marley-styled reggae, with Murphy handling vocals and electric guitar over a breezy groove. Recently-converted reggae disciple Snoop Lion sings a few lines toward the track’s conclusion, too.
Murphy announced the new track through his brand-new Twitter account. He also hyped an upcoming LP, titled 9, though no release date was mentioned. An official video for “Red Light” will be released on September 9th.
