Jamaican reggae artist Chronixx has announced his sophomore album, entitled Dela Splash, will arrive later this year. The project is the follow-up to his 2017 debut album Chronology, which went on to grab a GRAMMY nod for Best Reggae Album. To commemorate the news, the Spanish Town native has shared the project’s lead single “Dela Move” alongside a Nabil Elderkin-directed visual.

Speaking to Billboard about the project, Chronixx revealed thatDela Splash is like what I would do on a mixtape: exploring sounds limitlessly because you don’t have to worry about clearing samples, so you put everything you want on it and come up with a recipe for your next thing.” He continued, “I am looking at this long road ahead of producing, writing and making music and I’m not just going to do one-drop reggae or dancehall songs. Now is a good time to be authentic and explore all the music that I like.”

In the visual, Chronixx’s Jamaican roots are wholly showcased. As imagery of fire takes hold, Chronixx can be seen alongside Rasta drummers that are illuminated by the bonfire’s flame. A young female appears, blazing her own trail through a field, eventually breathing fire into a barrel of crabs. Much of the symbolization underlines the superficial competitiveness in the music business, something Chronixx has been exceedingly vocal about in the past.

You can watch the visual for “Dela Move” above.

For related news, Chronixx recently teamed up alongside Sampa the Great for a remix of “Black Is Beautiful.”
