New Reggae Release From Capleton & Dan IJ "Life Is So Precious"
New York based reggae artist, Dan IJ, who is known and respected as a versatile singer with a powerful voice and stage presence, has just released a collaboration with Jamaica’s fire man, Capleton. The record, which is entitled “Life Is So Precious,” is on Dan IJ’s own label, Lyfe Production.
Though the song was recorded a few years ago, it was just released and is already getting steady rotation on reggae stations around the world.
“Life Is So Precious” is truly a beautiful song. On top of a bouncy reggae rhythm (which at times transitions into a dancehall mix) both men lament on how amazing life is, while simultaneously showing gratitude for their respective life.

As Marley explains in an exclusive interview with The National hours before a sold-out show in Amsterdam – he rarely gives a nod to his own work. “This latest one is the only album that I enjoy listening to,” the 49-year-old Marley tells us.
