New York City’s inventors of ‘Jamaican Rock’n’Roll’! This is The Slackers’ first single in more than 3 years, including the exclusive B-side; ‘The Dub Of Woman’!
5 artists have created the 5 unique covers - all paying homage to The Slackers and the way of a woman!
Screaming Records is 10 years old and this is our 5th Tighten Up release. It is a time for contemplation and celebration. Their first release was by the legendary Ranking Roger, who sadly passed away earlier this year. With this 45, we are hoping to continue the tradition of excellence that Roger started and to celebrate new life. ‘The Way of a Woman' marks the beginning of the next chapter of releases for The Slackers.
The Slackers have been an institution in the Ska & Rocksteady community for almost three decades. They have a talent for magically renewing themselves time and time again. They have released 15 albums, numerous single releases, played thousands of shows, and don’t look to be stopping anytime soon. The ‘Jamaican Rock’n’Rollers' from New York City have never strayed off their mission of making a unique blend of Ska, Rocksteady, Soul, Blues and Rock ‘n’ Roll.
With ‘The Way of a Woman’, we find The Slackers initiating their next journey with an amazing lead single. The tracks’ mesmerizing rhythm, punchy horns, buzzy guitar riffs, and sensitive vocals are sure to make this a future standout of their live set.
Exclusively on this 7” we also have “The Dub of a Woman”, which in true old-school Studio One reggae fashion ‘dubs’ the single. All these elements come together in classic Slackers fashion, it sounds old and contemporary at the same time.

Issued in five different versions, with different colors vinyl randomly inserted in five different sleeves, 2019's 'The Way Of A Woman' is the first Slackers release in over three years.
