First Studio Album In More Than A Decade On Vinyl LP!

Rolling Stone's The 50 Best Albums of 2020 - Rated 35/50!

2021 Grammy Award Winner:
• Best Reggae Album: Got To Be Tough

Toots & The Maytals' first studio album in more than 10 years, Got To Be Tough, features the title track plus a cover of "Three Little Birds" with Ziggy Marley.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Toots explained: "This album is speaking out about injustices while pointing to a better time. This album is teaching a path to recovery and step to better days on the journey ahead. This album Got to Be Tough is a bind builder of positive objectives."

Co-produced by Zak Starkey, with contributions from Ziggy Marley, Jamacain rhythm king Sly Dunbar, Meters drummer Cyril Neville, and Starkey's dad, Ringo Starr, it's a perfect distillation of Toots' signature mix of reggae, soul, and funk, insurrectionary spirit, and bighearted down-home grit. 'Just Brutal' makes resistance feel like a party, while 'Freedom Train' travels from from Kingston to Memphis, gathering revolutionary energy along the way, and 'Three Little Birds,' with Ziggy Marley, turns Bob Marley's beloved melodic gem into a horn-driven barnburner. Though not intended as such, Got to Be Tough is a moving farewell to one of reggae's true fathers.
