Limited Edition Of Bob Marley’s ‘Exodus’ To Be Released In Celebration Of New Biopic

In celebration of the new Bob Marley biopic, Island/UMe will release a new limited edition of the reggae icon’s timeless album, Exodus, on May 24.

The biopic, titled Bob Marley: One Love, was released in the United States by Paramount Pictures on February 14, 2024.

Including an exclusive 10″ LP of rare bonus tracks and an essay by Jamaican historian Herbie Miller, this all-new package will be encased in a gatefold design for the first time and is available for preorder.

“Exodus is a timeless document that publicly reveals the contemplations and reflections on the life of one of the 20th century’s most revered artists and revolutionaries,” Miller writes in the new liner notes. “It shows Bob’s fears and vulnerability, his steadfast commitment to making humanity as equitable and ideal as imaginable and spreading his Rastafari spirituality to the four corners of the earth.” As depicted in a critical scene in the One Love film, this special edition will feature the original cover design of the album created by longtime Marley family friend, creative designer, and lighting director Neville Garrick.

Released on vinyl for the first time in decades, the 10″ includes dub versions of “Exodus,” “Jamming,” and “Punky Reggae Party” plus the rare “Roots,” first issued as the B-side of “Waiting In Vain.”
