           ‘Let Love Rule’


“The songwriting is poignant and as strong as ever, on an album which fair oozes soul and honesty.”

— Rolling Stone

Starting his solo career in 1990, musical and spiritual leader of Australia, Archie Roach, has spent the last twenty-six years transforming the experiences of indigenous Australians into universal works of art.

Let Love Rule is an 11-track opus, assuring listeners there’s always time for change, emphasized through the recently released single, ‘It’s Not Too Late’. The tenth studio album to date is a prayer to a shared humanity, a call for understanding and a reminder that goodness will triumph over adversity. Exploring the power of love, what it is and what it means, Roach expresses that he wrote the record to urge audiences to allow others into our hearts and minds.

The 18-month creative process of Let Love Rule saw the iconic artist travelling from a modest inner-Melbourne recording studio to the Melbourne Recital Centre and even back to his mother’s Gunditijmara country. Reuniting with producer Craig Pilkington who Roach worked with on Into The Bloodstream (2012), the spiritual work encapsulates a soulful production style and a vocal performance that is effortlessly unparalleled.
