‘Lost’ Bob Marley song to be released

The track was recorded shortly before the reggae legend’s death

A ‘lost’ Bob Marley song, recorded shortly before his death, is set to be released.

The previously unreleased track, called ‘Slogans’, was found last year by the reggae legend’s son Ziggy on an un-catalogued tape in the family’s possession.

It is believed that the song was recorded by Marley in a bedroom in Miami in 1979.

Following in the footsteps of the ‘lost’ Beatles record ‘Free As A Bird’, the original acoustic demo of ‘Slogans’ has been overdubbed by other instruments and includes Eric Clapton on guitar.

‘Slogans’ will be released as both a single and on the compilation ‘Africa Unite: The Singles Collection’, due to hit the shops in November.

There could also be more unreleased material on the way, with sources saying that the long-lost tape contains ‘six or seven’ other previously unheard Marley songs. Titles are believed to include ‘Jailbreaker’, ‘Vexation’, ‘Jump Them Out Of Babylon’ and ‘Pray For Me’.
