Horace Andy – Midnight Rocker

On-U Sound are proud to present Midnight Rocker a brand new album from Horace Andy, produced by Adrian Sherwood.

“On-U Sound are very proud to present a truly wonderful album with one of the all time great singer-songwriters in the rich history of Jamaican music, Horace Andy, This is a true gold star performance and I’m very proud of it.” – Adrian Sherwood.

Adrian Sherwood has spent a long time realising his dream of making an album with legendary Jamaican vocalist Horace Andy, beloved by reggae fans worldwide for his classic 70s and 80s tracks for labels such as Studio One and Wackies such as Skylarking and Money Money, and boasting proper crossover appeal in modern times via his frequent contributions to Massive Attack, being a mainstay of their touring line-up and singing on all of their studio albums to date.

Midnight Rocker has been approached in a similar fashion to the late-career quality that Sherwood coaxed out of Lee “Scratch” Perry with the Rainford and Heavy Rain albums, assembling a crack team of players and spending many months perfecting performance, arrangements and mixing. The result is 11 remarkable tracks that sparkle with superb musicianship, carefully crafted production and some truly beautiful vocals from Andy.

Midnight Rocker is available now on Red Vinyl, Black Vinyl, & CD
