Kacey Musgraves recently released an acoustic cover of Bob Marley and The Wailers classic “Three Little Birds.”
The country star’s version of the 1977 classic will feature on the soundtrack of the long-awaited biopic Bob Marley: One Love.
The seven-track EP, called Bob Marley: One Love (Music Inspired by the Film), is set to be released on February 14, the same day as the movie itself.
The soundtrack EP also features Marley’s grandson Skip Marley, alongside Daniel Caesar, Wizkid, Leon Bridges, Jessie Reyez and Bloody Civilian.
The biopic, directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green and filmed in Jamaica and England, stars Kingsley Ben-Adir as the reggae figurehead.
The film focuses on the period after a 1976 assassination attempt on Marley, as he prepares to return to Jamaica in 1978 for the “One Love Peace Concert.”
Lashana Lynch plays Marley’s wife Rita in the film, which is produced by Rita, Ziggy, and Cedella Marley in collaboration with Paramount Pictures. The film is written by Zach Baylin, Frank E. Flowers, and Terence Winter.
“The mission is always to spread Daddy’s music to every corner of the Earth, and we were very thoughtful in handpicking these artists,” Cedella Marley said in a statement. “Having his songs rebirthed at the same time we get to show the world his story through this movie, is something that my family and I are extremely proud to be a part of.”
