ETANA is putting the finishing touches on her forthcoming album, the singer's third.

It will be distributed by VP Records and is expected to be released this summer.

It is the follow-up to her 2011 album, Free Expressions, which peaked at number 11 on Billboard's Reggae album chart.

Known for hits such as I Am Not Afraid, Wrong Address, Warrior Love and Jah Jah Blessing, Etana has been relatively quiet in recent months.

In an interview with the Jamaica Observer, she explained the concept behind her upcoming disc.

"The album will feature all well- produced tracks from the writing of the first lyric to the last note," she said. "Bigger, fresher, newer sounds. Roots, rub-a-dub, world music."

Producer Shane Brown from Juke Boxx produced most of the album. There are also songs from Donovan Germain and Freemind Music.

Keyboardist Kevon Webster and C sharp members, bassist Aeion Hoilett and guitarist Lamont 'Monty' Savory worked on the set, which has collaborations with Spice and Busy Signal.
