Snoop Lion, AKA Snoop Dogg, has debuted a new track titled 'Here Comes The King' – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen.

Snoop, who recently changed his name to Snoop Lion to coincide with his new reggae direction, recruited singer Angela Hunte to provide vocals for the song, which is taken from his forthcoming new LP 'Reincarnated'.

‘Here Comes The King’ is the latest taster from the album after Snoop previewed the track 'La, La, La' last month (November 1). The accompanying video saw him dressed as a lion strolling around a jungle surrounded by children dressed as wild animals, before asking them if they prefer Snoop Dogg or his new alias.

He said: "A lot of kids, a lot of costumes, you know lion in the jungle, just having a good time. A bunch of kids dressed in costume, dancin' shakin' and bakin', makin' it move to the music and the sounds of Snoop Lion." Scroll down and click to see the clip.

The rapper, who recently said that he doesn't have to justify his change in direction as he has complete freedom in his creative direction, will release 'Reincarnated' in February. It will also feature a documentary explaining his new direction. "If I just drop this music, it leaves room for questioning," he said. "You wouldn't understand the whole journey or the transformation. When I allow you to see the movie, to go on the journey with me, to see exactly why I'm the Lion."

Snoop Lion recently played his first live show in Toronto, Canada which featured cuts from Bob Marley's 'Could You Be Loved' and 'Iron Lion Zion'.
