 10 brand new recordings from the legendary Jamaican singer and long-time Massive Attack collaborator Horace Andy, produced by Adrian Sherwood.
 Now available as a new gold vinyl edition.
 ‘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 much-loved 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
 “This is not only Horace Andy’s best album in 40 years, but it’s also a work of lasting power” - MOJO (Album of the Month ★★★★)
 “‘Midnight Rocker’ is a late-career masterpiece” - The Guardian (Global Album Of The Month ★★★★★)
 “‘Midnight Rocker’’s 10 songs have a uniformly gorgeous full-band swing and engineering touches that can give a heavy dub coat to a song with a rocksteady-ish slope” - The Wire
 Gold vinyl housed in printed inner sleeve and standard 3mm printed outer sleeve with high gloss finish, comes with download card.
