MORGAN HERITAGE - Here Come The Kings - OUT !

MORGAN HERITAGE join forces once again on their first album in 5 years

Release Dates: UK: June 10th // GAS & RoE: June 14th // FR: June 17th  
Catalog # VP1975
Nearly two decades and ten albums later, the mission has come full circle for Morgan Heritage
Globally known as the Royal Family of Reggae and now today being dubbed as the Rolling Stones of Reggae (in large part due to the act’s electric stage shows), Morgan Heritage has established themselves as the premier live group on the reggae circuit.  

After respective solo careers and music ventures of their own, Morgan Heritage returns this spring with their groundbreaking album Here Come The Kings

Lyrically, Here Come The Kings is a refresher course for culture music fans, staying true to Morgan Heritage’s authentic 'Rockaz' style, with brilliant instrumentation and empowering lyrics. However, collaborations with ingenious young blood producers like Lamar Brown (Notice Productions), Shane C. Brown (Juke Boxx Productions) and multiple Grammy nominee, Jason “J-Vibe” Farmer, lead the band to explore new sounds that successfully fuse roots, r&b, and a hint of dancehall.

The new album is co-produced by Morgan Heritage, alongside some of reggae’s most innovative talents including: Linton White (Perfect Love Song), Shane Brown (The Return), Jason Farmer (Girl is Mine) and Donovan “Don Corleon” Bennett (Call To Me). Grammy-winning Jamaican icon Shaggy lays his indistinguishable vocals on ladies anthem Loved Stoned.

Here Come The Kings reminds us, that the pulse of one of reggae’s most enduringly successful acts, Morgan Heritage, will be eternally pure.
