Natty explores his roots on new single 'Motherland'

Roots | Wednesday 16th May 2018 | Alex

British-born reggae star Natty has returned with the soulful new visuals for 'Motherland', taken from his critically acclaimed second album, ‘Release The Fear’, a record which featured collabs with Alborosie, Busy Signal and George The Poet.

Natty takes his influence from the various forms of ancestral music that exist across the globe, and in ‘Motherland’ we see him celebrating the land of his mother, and the cradle of civilization – Africa.

The track also serves as a lament to what he sees as the alienation of modern life, with the MC saying: "Generation X lost in shorthand text, KMT going Africa to build myself a Babylon-proof vest."

The official music video, shot in stunning Sierra Leone sees Natty exploring the terrain on a journey to find inner strength. A place of significance to Natty, he has visited and performed there numerous times, having recently sent a container of aid relief for those affected by the floods in Freetown. Natty describes it as one of the "most beautiful places I can remember touring".
