Eight-time GRAMMY Award-winning singer/songwriter/producer Stephen Marley has released ‘Old Soul’, his first full-length project since 2016.

It features a stellar line-up of special guests, including Bob Weir, Eric Clapton, Jack Johnson, Buju Banton, and Slightly Stoopid.

Also featured are his brothers Ziggy Marley and Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley.

A retrospective music video for the album’s title track, “Old Soul,” released earlier this summer, features unseen Marley family images and a montage of Jamaican musical heritage.

With its warm acoustic narrative, the song carries listeners through Stephen’s evolution, intertwined with the Marley legacy.

The song was originally penned by Omi, but Stephen adapted the song to reflect his personal journey, suggesting a familiarity with past life experiences.

‘Old Soul’ will be available on CD, a 2LP standard black vinyl, and as a limited-edition double LP vinyl in translucent yellow and green on December 1st.

However, it’s available now on all digital platforms via Tuff Gong Collective/UMe/Ghetto Youths International.
