The album is scheduled for a June 25 release by Universal Music Enterprises.

“This session is one of my fondest memories from the KCRW studios,” says Jason Bentley, the station’s music director.

“Jimmy Cliff sat right down with his guitar and gave 110 per cent on every song, and then proved himself a gentleman in thoughtful conversation. We all felt graced by a living legend that day, and we witnessed a truly special performance that I’m proud to say lives on through this recording,” he continued.

Released last year, Rebirth was produced by Tim Armstrong of punk-ska band Rancid. The 13-track album received rave reviews, with Rolling Stone magazine describing it as Cliff’s “best music in decades”.
