Lee “Scratch” Perry Announces Second LP Of 2019

Brian Eno and The Wailers' Vin Gordon feature alongside frequent collaborator Adrian Sherwood

Lee "Scratch" Perry has announced details of his second album of 2019, produced once again alongside Adrian Sherwood. You can hear a track from the record, called ‘Enlightened’, above.

Titled Heavy Rain, the album is presented as a companion to Perry’s last album, Rainford, which came out in June. The new LP sees Perry and Sherwood reworking material from that album.

Brian Eno and The Wailers’ Vin Gordon both feature on Heavy Rain. Eno’s contribution sees him overhauling Rainford track ‘Makumba Rock’ which is renamed ‘Here Come The Warm Dreads’ on the new record as a callback to Eno’s own debut solo album. There are also two entirely new tracks featured, titled ‘Dreams Come True’ and ‘Above And Beyond’.

Heavy Rain will be released digitally and on vinyl via On-U Sound on December 6.
