The Grammy award-winning reggae group Morgan Heritage ––currently composed of the Trinity: Peetah Morgan, Gramps Morgan, and Mr. Mojo Morgan, all the children of late reggae great and Father of A Nation, the Hon. Ras Denroy Morgan –– have announced their new studio album, The Homeland, out April 21. The star-studded 21-track collection – the group’s first since Denroy Morgan’s passing last year – marks a new era for Morgan Heritage, as they expand their global reach from the Caribbean to the African Continent and beyond with guest contributions from Youssou N’Dour, Shaggy, Beenie Man, Shatta Wale, Popcaan, Mádé Kuti, and more.
This album is a project of rebirth for the Morgan brothers, built upon a lineage that has lasted decades and one that will continue to forge forward. Musically, they take the listener on a journey that not only reminds them of days past, but the future ahead.
The Homeland kicks off a busy year for Morgan Heritage, who will also appear at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and tour the globe later this year. At the end of the month, Morgan Heritage will be at the GRAMMY Museum (at L.A. Live) as guests for The Drop Series on March 28.
This is set to kickstart the culturally-iconic band’s global promotional tour, with planned stops in Nigeria, Ghana, Uganda, Los Angeles, New York, England, Germany and France. They bring a riveting stage presence and showmanship to the culture which has made them synonymous with Reggae’s worldwide appeal.
In anticipation of the new album, Morgan Heritage have shared the lead single Who Deh Like U featuring Ghana’s Stonebwoy, Bounty Killer and Cham. The new jam blends the multiple grammy winning group’s reggae sounds with the dancehall and afropop vibe that Stonebwoy, Bounty Killer and Cham infuse effortlessly, giving listeners a solid African music experience.
