From video premieres on Billboard.com to song previews on Yahoo! Music, while purposefully saturating every music playing platform in between, internationally acclaimed roots reggae band, Morgan Heritage, is in full work mode as they prepare to drop their highly anticipated 10th studio album, even as they embark on a month-long tour of the United States.
With So Amazing, the second single from the upcoming album, Strictly Roots enjoying a brilliant preview on Yahoo Music! And upping the global attention the sibling band has been attracting, Morgan Heritage has proven that as a unit they are definitely so amazing. As online lifestyle/entertainment portal, AXS.com states, “The buoyant reggae pop number (So Amazing) is about adoration for a lover but the title could just as easily apply to everything Morgan Heritage does.”
Undoubtedly, So Amazing has an appeal that is as eclectic as it is universal, as was the intention of the Royal Family of Reggae during the creative process, and somewhere along the line, the track was generously soaked in sweetness. A review posted by Ital Roots Radio states: “The song is pristine in quality and virtually flawless. It's clear and clean, feel-good, pop-reggae with mass appeal. Peetah Morgan is on fire – his vocals immaculate, and with Jemere and J Boog adding their sweetness, there is so much honey in these three voices combined, beware of diabetes.”
So Amazing is described by the group as “the type of song that puts you in a fun loving mood” and certainly on one level it shows the versatility of the highly respected reggae quintet, which is renowned for their didactic social commentary and refreshingly authentic rockaz style of roots reggae. It is collaborations such as these, in this case with J Boog, Jemere Morgan and Gil Sharone that are the hallmark of Strictly Roots and help to place this album in a category labeled ‘keepsake’.
With promotion for their Strictly Roots tour in high gear, Morgan Heritage, along with special guest, Jemere Morgan, will make a memorable stop at the Highline Ballroom in New York City on Thursday April 9, where fans will be treated to a catalogue of hits from reggae's premier live band.
Strictly Roots is set for release on all major digital platforms on April 20 and the physical copy on April 21.
