JAMAICA-BASED Chevelle Franklyn has released her long-awaited new album, 'Set Time', on N.O.W. Records.

Fusing her trademark Caribbean beats with the gospel to great effect, the new album was recorded at her Living Stones Studio in Kingston, Jamaica. It features collaborations with Donnie McClurkin, Israel Houghton, South Africa’s iconic worship leader Lionel Peterson and Nigerian star Frank Edwards.

From the album’s opener, the reggae laced sing-jay track First Love, Set Time is filled with powerful worship anthems, memorable praise songs and moving ballads and will appeal to old dancehall fans as well as new listeners.

Franklyn comments:

“This is the time and I am ready to share it [the new album] with the world, this is the set time."

After a spiritual encounter, Franklyn chose to walk away from a thriving musical career in 1998 following the success of numerous chart-topping singles recorded with the likes of Shabba Ranks and Beenie Man to name a few. The vocal powerhouse has shared a stage with some of the world’s top artists such as Buju Banton, Miriam Makeba, Jimmy Cliff, Ricky Martin, Mary J. Blige, The Fugees, Lenny Kravitz and Boyz II Men.

Franklyn re-emerged on the gospel music scene, becoming an international, multiple award-winning Psalmist.
