The first single off the next re-released album from the late, great, Bob Marley, is set to hit iTunes on Tuesday, May 14th. This time, however, the album will feature his well-known tracks with a new twist.
Legend: Remixed is a new compilation that will feature 15 remixed tracks from Bob Marley and The Wailer’s twelfth album, Legend.
DJ-producer Jason Bentley has teamed up with Marley’s son, Stephen Marley, to release a remixed version of his father’s timeless track, “Three Little Birds.”
The song is one of Bob Marley and The Wailer’s most popular songs so you can be sure that the two artists only wanted to make it better without taking too much away from the original version. According to an article in Rolling Stone, the two take the song “to a new level with fresh, snappy snares and revamped synths that put a little extra pop in the positive jam.”
Legend: Remixed is scheduled for a summer time release a long with the “Legend: Remix” documentary that will take fans behind the scenes of the making of the remix album. Both the album & DVD are expected out sometime this summer.
Almost 30 years after the release of the best-selling reggae album of all-time, you can expect to hear some great remixes of your favorite Bob Marley & The Wailers classics from the original Legend album! Make sure to check back with The Pier for any updates on the release of Legend: Remixed!
