Clinark has just released a new single and video “Forever Came Today" to commemorate the passing of the legendary singer, Michael Jackson. UK based singer, songwriter and producer, (real name (Clinarke Dill) has given this cover a subtle Reggae twist. This Motown song was originally covered by Diana Ross & The Supremes in 1967.The Jackson 5 covered it in 1975 with Michael and Jermaine Jackson as joint leads.

Clinark say’s “I wanted to do this song as it’s a lesser covered version of the Jackson 5, that I like. But I can see why, as it required a lot of different treatment in terms of the production and vocals. This time I worked jointly with Carey Annerley on keyboards and MJ fan “Sylvia. A “on backing vocals.” “The song is now available to download on Revebnation.com/Clinark and on iTunes, Amazon and major download stores from tomorrow (26 June 2015), for $0.99 and less. The Video is available on his own music label Nurture Projects on YouTube. It contains some fan collected footage from Forest Lawn, California with street dance scenes from Bermuda and on location in Jubilee Park Edmonton, London, England

Clinark has always been a loyal fan of Michael Jackson, as a young singer he covered Jackson’s songs in his hometown, Southampton, Bermuda, He has previously released “I’ll Be There” (May 2009) just before Jackson passing, and was looking forward to seeing him in concert, sadly that did not come to pass.  He released another cover of “Smile” (Dec 2009) and A Tribute to Michael Jackson - A Legend and a Warrior (2010) an 18 track album.  He has also covered “Human Nature”(2013) and “All I Do is Think of You” (2014)  which are on pre- release with some fan footage in the videos  which are also available on the Nurture Projects Channel.

Clinark was also inspired to compose his own tribute to Jackson last year called “Happy Birthday MJ” (2014) which saw him move to a more Soulful House style. In 2015 he remixed the song  and re-titled the work “Happy Birthday Today” which is on his current E.P, "The Solution.” Both songs are available on digital download stores.

“The Solution EP”Is a five track self - penned album. The project includes 2 new songs, the conscious title track, "The Solution” calls for a "Rebel-U-tion" for the world, in the same vein is "Babylon City." This is about the UK Summer Riots in 2011 and the sequel “No More War”. Also included is the new Lovers Rock "What You Gonna Do?"

Clinark consistently rides in the top 10 of the Reverbnation Charts for the UK in his main genre of Reggae and in the last week was back up to number One. More information is available on his website: Clinark.com
