On 18 October 2010 Ali released his fourth solo album Great British Songs-a collection of British pop and rock hits from the 1960s and 1970s. The album reached 15 on the UK Albums Chart where it remained for three weeks. In August 2014, Campbell announced that he had reunited with former UB40 band mates Astro and Mickey Virtue to record a new album, Silhouette. He said of his brother Duncan's singing, "I sat back for five years and watched my brother Duncan murdering my songs. We're saving the legacy". They record under the name 'UB40 featuring Ali, Astro and Mickey' after legal action preventing them from calling the band UB40.

Ali does full justice to these classic songs, as the reggae beat adds a new twist to the songs while retaining the spirit of the original versions. Perhaps the most surprising inclusion is Baker Street, in which Ali wisely found a saxophonist who was able to do Raphael Ravenscroft& parts well.

Ali Campbell, the legendary voice of UB40, releases his fourth solo album ‘Great British Songs’ a collection of iconic British hits reinterpreted in a reggae style. Ali has reworked hits from the 60s and 70s starting with 1964’s ‘You Really Got Me Going’ by The Kinks and The Beatles’ ‘Hard Day’s Night' and including songs by Rolling Stones, The Hollies, Rod Stewart, Free, and The Who and, last but not least, 1978’s 'Baker Street' by Gerry Rafferty. I really enjoyed making it and loved the challenge of taking iconic songs by artists like the Beatles, Rolling Stones and the Kinks and putting reggae and dancehall beats to them. Recorded in Jamaica and London, Ali had just completed mixing the album when he collapsed and was taken to hospital. Having originally believed that he had flu, Ali was diagnosed with the Epstein Barr virus and advised by doctors to rest for two months.
