Do you have a favourite track on your new album?

Richie Stephens: MY FAVOURITE IS LET JAH WILL BE DONE. THE TRACK WAS ORIGINALLY DONE FOR A SINGER CALLED JOHNNY CLARKE WITH A SONG CALLED "NONE SHALL ESCAPE THE JUDGEMENT" BACK IN THE SEVENTIES WHICH WAS MY FAVOURITE SONG AS A CHILD. SO EVERY TIME I LISTEN TO 'LET JAH WILL BE DONE' IT MAKES ME FEEL THAT SAME MAGIC...
