A previously unknown recording by reggae icon Bob Marley is slated to be released in November on a new compilation album, England’s NME.com reports.
The song, “Slogans,” was found last year by Marley’s son Ziggy among uncataloged tapes in the family’s archives. The acoustic demo recording is believed to have been recorded in Miami in 1979 and has been completed with instrumental overdubs added by other musicians, including Eric Clapton. It will be part of an album titled “Africa Unite: The Singles Collection.”
It was one of several songs on the tape, and others might be released later, sources told NME. Marley died of cancer in 1981 at age 36.
