Apparently, Bob Marley & the Wailers’ fabled album Legend needed to be reinvented as an EDM-flecked compilation because at the end of the month, we’re getting Legend Remixed. The project was approved by Marley’s sons Ziggy and Stephen who both serve as producers and remixers on the collection. According to press material, Stephen’s flip of “Three Little Birds” “serves as the worry-free anthem for Hyundai’s new Assurance Connected Care program, a new suite of features that allows drivers to feel safe and secure and enjoy a stress-free ownership experience.” Other remixers include Thievery Corporation, RAC, Roni Size, and My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James, who has taken on “Waiting In Vain,” which you can check out below.
