Listen to Stephen Marley’s ‘Kaya 40’ remix of the track ‘She’s Gone’.
‘She’s Gone’ remixed by Bob Marley’s son, Stephen Marley, has been released from the upcoming ‘Kaya 40’ anniversary edition out August 24th via Tuff Gong / Island Def Jam / UMe.
On the 24th of August, The Marley Family, Island Records, and UMC will collectively proclaim the sun is shining in celebration of 40 years of Kaya, Bob Marley & The Wailers’ historic March 1978 release. The album’s themes of love and peace have resonated across the world and the record was certified gold in the UK, France and the US, and spent nearly six months on the British charts, four of them in the top ten. Now, we welcome ‘Kaya 40’.
Today, another taster from the release has been revealed in the form of Stephen Marley’s remix of ‘She’s Gone’. The track is about Bob’s breakup with Cindy Breakspear (Damian Marley’s mother, “Miss Jamaica”) and is one of the few songs by Bob Marley where he gives you a taste of his personal life. Nonetheless, the couple actually remained close for the remainder of Marley’s life, including the lengthy period during which the singer struggled against cancer.
This most special anniversary edition of the album will feature Stephen “Ragga” Marley’s exciting and vibrant new “Kaya 40” mixes of all ten tracks from the original album alongside its original mixes in 2CD and 180-gram 2LP configurations. (The digital version will be a standalone release of Stephen’s mixes only.) The album will also be available as a limited edition 180-gram 2LP green vinyl version exclusively at BobMarley.com.
Bob Marley’s artistic legacy forever endures, and the 40th-anniversary edition of Kaya only serves to reinforce just how much we all share the shelter of this special music.
