It’s not every day a nation celebrates 50 years of independence. Accordingly, it’s not every day the defining voice of the nation’s most successful pop reggae band since the 1980s gets to make a personal contribution. “Land We Love” is a modern day praise song in the timeless soulful reggae tradition written and performed by Bunny Rugs, lead singer of Third World. Although performed by Rugs, “Land We Love” speaks for the nation. “Jamaicans we are number one,” he sings, “world leaders and champions, prophets and musicians”. Assisted by Dean Fraser’s breezy saxophone solos, Bunny Rugs puts a special spin on independence and a lot of love in the dance and through your speakers with “Land We Love”.
“Land We Love” was recorded at Grafton Studios, mixed by Stephen Stanley and is taken from the upcoming album Time (release date September 11, 2012, distributed by VP Records).
