(VIA TUFF GONG)Tuff Gong International has partnered with Island Stage Magazine to release a brand new animated video for Bob Marley‘s 1979 classic 11th album title track “Survival.” The fresh visuals premiered on Tuff Gong Television today, following a full day of “Survival 76” themed programming that took place on February 6th to commemorate the iconic reggae star’s 76th earthstrong.

Directed and animated by Xavier LeBlanc of Island Stage, the new clip gives the viewer a glimpse into the corner of a fan’s room that is adorned with all things Bob Marley and Survival, including a copy of the legendary album with cover artwork that depicts 48 African flags (and that of Papua New Guinea), in a call for solidarity among African nations. At night, “things begin to happen,” according to the video’s Executive Producer, Susan Underwood. As items in the room begin to wake up and live, the King of Reggae’s urgent message can be heard flowing through the air, courtesy of the fan’s House Of Marley speakers:

In this age of technological inhumanity (Black survival)
Scientific atrocity (survivors)
Atomic mis-philosophy (Black survival)
Nuclear mis-energy (survivors)
It’s a world that forces lifelong insecurity (Black survival)
All together now
