Kacey Musgraves Covers Bob Marley's “Three Little Birds” from Biopic “Bob Marley: One Love” Soundtrack
American country singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves released a cover of Jamaican reggae singer-songwriter Bob Marley's “Three Little Birds” on January 26, 2024.
The song is featured on an upcoming Bob Marley's biographical film “Bob Marley: One Love” soundtrack.
The original version of the song was released by Bob Marley and the Wailers from their ninth studio album “Exodus” in 1977.
The track was written by Bob Marley. The cover version was produced by Kacey Musgraves and Ian Fitchuk.
The film “Bob Marley: One Love” was directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green, starring Kingsley Ben-Adir, Lashana Lynch, and James Norton.
It is based on the life of Bob Marley, from his rise to fame up until his death in 1981.
The film is scheduled to be released on February 14, 2024.
On the same day of releasing the film, the 7-track EP “Bob Marley: One Love (Music Inspired by the Film)”, featuring reinterpretations of Marley song by Musgraves, Daniel Caesar, Wizkid, Leon Bridges, Jessie Reyez, Bloody Civilian, and Skip Marley, Bob Marley’s grandson, will also be released.
Bob Marley's daughter Cedella Marley said of the EP in a statement, “The mission is always to spread Daddy’s music to every corner of the Earth, and we were very thoughtful in handpicking these artists. 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.”
