Universal Music Enterprises released REBIRTH, the new studio album from Grammy® Award-winning musician, actor, singer, songwriter and producer Jimmy Cliff, on July 17, 2012 where it debuted at No. 1, remained for 5 weeks straight and continues to be a top 3 record on the Reggae chart.

REBIRTH once again pairs the reggae superstar and Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famer with the award-winning producer and punk legend Tim Armstrong, who produced the thirteen-track album. Armstrong also produced Cliff’s Sacred Fire EP which was released late in 2011, and Rolling Stone magazine hailed the music as Cliff’s “best music in decades.”

Together they bring fire to both compelling Cliff originals and a couple of pointedly chosen covers. “World Upside Down” and “One More” show an artist as engaged with – and troubled by – the state of the world as much as he was when he made such landmark songs as “You Can Get It If You Really Want” and the title song of the movie The Harder They Come, both game-changers that will mark their 40th anniversary this year. A version of the Clash’s “The Guns of Brixton” taps into the popular uprisings for freedom in the Middle East, not to mention the recent London riots, which took place as sessions for the album were underway. Rancid’s affectionate portrait “Ruby Soho” brings the generations together, a full-circle journey of icon and acolytes.
