UB40, featuring Ali, Astro and Mickey, Red Red Wine

Three original members of the Brummie reggae hit-making band UB40 have launched a ‘Red Red Wine’. The Red Red Wine is a collaboration between original UB40 band members Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue (who are now no longer part of the official band) and Eminent Life, a company that creates limited-edition products connected to the arts. In May last year Eminent Life launched a limited edition ‘Cuvée Roger Daltrey’ Champagne to coincide with the 50th anniversary of The Who. Produced from a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the Red Red Wine cuvée has a fruit profile of sweet blackcurrant, plum and cherry, ‘oh baby’…

The Red Red Wine is being launched alongside the release by the trio of a new album of acoustic reggae, entitled Unplugged, featuring some of the band’s biggest hits. The song Red Red Wine was written in 1967 by US singer-songwriter Neil Diamond. It was picked up by UB40, who used it on their 1983 album of covers, Labour of Love. The track reached number one in the UK Singles Chart in August 1983.
