10 brand new recordings from the legendary Jamaican singer and long-time Massive Attack collaborator Horace Andy, produced by Adrian Sherwood.

‘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 a remarkable suite of tracks that sparkle with superb musicianship, carefully crafted production and Horace’s beautiful vocals.

The material includes revisiting and updating a few classic Horace Andy songs such as ‘Mr. Bassie’, but the bulk of the tracks are brand new compositions with contemporary messages, such as ‘Watch Over Them’ and ‘Materialist’. The pair have also versioned ‘Safe From Harm’, a muchloved early single by the group that Andy is most associated with – Massive Attack.

“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
