   “It’s a perfect day for a love song,” are the first words from the smiling lips of Peetah Morgan on the well-executed video to accompany the debut single, Perfect Love Song,  from Morgan Heritage’s new album, Here Come The Kings.  
  Well, with the single now anchored  firmly at the number one position on the Toronto Chart (Radio Dubplate - Richard Banton) many persons will agree that this is the perfect way to salute the return of Royal Family of Reggae, Morgan Heritage. And not only is Perfect Love Song doing well in Toronto, it has found considerable favour  “a yaad”, as well, where it  is racing up the Jamaica Countdown Chart, perched at number four and poised to claim the top spot any time soon. Additionally, in solid recognition of their worldwide appeal, Perfect Love Song has been in pole position in Japan for the past six weeks and is also racing up the charts in the UK.
 The reggae band has returned after a five-year hiatus with a spectacular album which is set to be released on June 11, and in the run-up to the release, Morgan Heritage did a five-day media blitz in Jamaica, which served the intended purpose of re-connecting with fans. In addition to interviews with various media outlets, the Royal Family of Reggae also performed on TVJ’s immensely popular music programme, Layers of Soul. It was aired on June 2 and had all Jamaica glued to their television sets, as they were reminded exactly why Morgan Heritage is hailed as one of Reggae’s best and most influential ambassadors. “Awesome” and “refresing” were two of the words most frequently used to describe the group’s outstanding performance on what was appropriately the grand finale of this Season’s Layers of Soul.
 Currently on their World Tour, Heritage will break for a few days, as they again return to Jamaica to host a launch party forHere Come The Kings in Kingston on June 13, along with an album signing at Music Mart  that same afternoon. Montego Bay will also experience Morgan Heritage with an invitation-only event at the RIU Hotel and an in-store signing at El Paso Records between 4:00 and 6:30pm on June 11. The following day will see them in Ocho Rios for a performance at Jewels Resort.

 According to an enthusiastic Una Morgan, the love that Heritage experiences when they are in Jamaica is comparable to none other. “Jamaica is home on many levels and as the saying goes, there is no place like home. We all feel humbled by the embrace we have received … it’s as if we never took a hiatus. Everything has been so seamless and we give thanks to everybody in Jamaica - and also to our fans all over the globe - for helping to build Morgan Heritage and always keeping us in your hearts while playing our music.”
 Here Come The Kings is a 12-track masterpiece on the VP Records, Gedion and CTBC imprints. It will be officially released worldwide on June 11, 2013.
