Bob Marley & The Wailer’s ‘Exodus’ Gets New Official Lyric Video

A new official lyric video for Bob Marley & The Wailer‘s “Exodus” debuted Wednesday on Bob Marley‘s official YouTube channel. The new video for “Exodus” draws on shared histories, collective pain, and a cry for liberation, showing through rich visuals a parallel between the Biblical story of Moses leading the Israelites out of Egypt and the hope of guiding the Rastafarians to freedom.

The video articulates a message of triumph, hope, unity, and strength of a community coming together using hand-drawn illustrations and textures laced with powerful, archival footage of Bob Marley & The Wailers performing “Exodus” in Zimbabwe in 1980.

Meanwhile, Ziggy Marley is wrapping up his summer tour, performing a live tribute to his father as part of the belated Bob Marley 75th Birthday celebrations. Ziggy and his band continue to breathe new life into Bob Marley’s most iconic songs, headlining dates in Europe, the U.K., and North America.

“Ziggy Marley: A Live Tribute To His Father” concerts will take place at Hayden Homes Amphitheater in Bend, Oregon, on September 6, at McMenamins Edgefield Amphitheater in Troutdale, Oregon, on September 8, and at Chateau Ste Michelle Amphitheatre in Woodinville, Washington, on September 9.
