  Veteran dancehall toaster Lloyd D Stiff has released a new lover's rock single called ‘All Night Long’, and he is pleased with the response thus far.   “I have been working on my mix tape entitled "Unfinished Business" and my album" Big People Sitten" to be released sometime this year. The mix tape Unfinished Business will be the first to hit the public, and will consist of some of my hits of the 80's and early 90's digi rub-a-dub style then a barrage of new more up to date songs dance hall style. The single All Night Long is one of the first singles from the album and the response has been great so far,” Lloyd D said.  
The video for 'All Night Long' was released over the weekend, and will hit cable TV this week. 
In the meantime, LLoyd extolled the virtues of the 'Unfinished Business' mixtape which has a mainstream appeal because of the lyrical content featured in the various genres of the music.
“This mix tape is one to look out for because unlike other mix tape this one has music for everyone. It has rub a dub style, one drop, soca music and of course nuff things fi di hardcore dance hall lovers. The album, ‘Big People Sitten’, however is a much smoother laid back, one drop style for the more mature audience,” Lloyd D said.
He said the album will be released in April and is 'grown and sexy' without being explicit.
“ The album has clean sexy non-explicit lyrical content that anyone could be  played loud on a Sunday afternoon without offending your church-going  neighbours. Trust me every song has a story to tell, a story that each of us could relate to,” he said.
Although Lloyd D is known for his roots rock and rub-a-dub material, he took time out to voice on the Aurora skies riddim, produced by Elvis Redwood of Unique Records, and the Mercury riddim produced by Claude Mills and Rohan ‘Jah Snowcone’ Fuller. Lloyd is also dabbling in the media as a co-host of popular cable show. 
“I'm also currently co-hosting a monthly show called 'Cool Storm'  which is aired on one of the local network cable stations in New York,” Lloyd D said.
