Ziggy Marley will release his sixth solo studio album, Ziggy Marley, on May 20th through Tuff Gong Worldwide.

Ziggy is set to guest star in the hit action television series Hawaii Five-0 which will air on Friday, February 26th on CBS.

Three Ziggy songs will run during the episode including two new album tracks “Weekend’s Long” and “Ceceil”. “Forward To Love,” from Ziggy’s fourth solo studio album, Wild and Free, will also be included in the episode.
