Liam Bailey – Mercy Tree video and Zero Grace album release

It’s release day for Liam Bailey’s second Big Crown album, Zero Grace. To celebrate, he’s dropped a video for Mercy Tree from the album.

He hooks up with Leon Michels of El Michels Affair again for a reggae and soul sound infused with that El Michels dusty love. I’m hoping Liam is lining up some live dates in support of the album!

Order / stream / buy right here.

Zero Grace is full of freedom and love, in fact, working with Leon Michels and Big Crown Records has encouraged Liam to be himself. On album opener “Holding On ” Bailey speaks to his observations & fears when looking out at the world in front of him and also to the dedication it has taken to get on the other side of his personal trials & tribulations. “Dance With Me” is an instantly infectious two-stepper that nods to those incredible soul records that were coming out of Jamaica during the early Reggae days. Bailey steps into the dance with hopes of finding a new love and pulls us all out on the dance floor with him. “Disorder Starts At Home” is another close to the chest tune that addresses the difficulties he struggles with from his early chaotic childhood and his progress in getting past them. “Mercy Tree” is a powerhouse of Reggae Rebel Music. Bailey addresses the racial tensions that plague humanity and encourages everyone to step up and do their part to help foster equality. What starts out as a declaration of injustice turns into a call for action and an inspiration for hope.
