Midnight Rocker features 10 brand new recordings from legendary Jamaican singer and longtime Massive Attack collaborator, Horace Andy, produced by Adrian Sherwood.
Midnight Rocker was 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 performances, arrangements and mixing. The result is a remarkable suite of songs that sparkle with superb musicianship, carefully crafted production, and Horace’s beautiful vocals.
While Midnight Rocker revisits and updates a few classic Horace Andy songs like “Mr. Bassie,” the bulk of the tracks are brand new compositions with contemporary messages, such as “Watch Over Them” and “Materialist.” You’ll also find a version of “Safe From Harm,” a much-loved early single by the group Andy is most associated with – Massive Attack.
