Redemption Song – Bob Marley Loading

Redemption Song è un brano musicale di Bob Marley del 1980, ultima traccia dell’album Uprising. Quando scrisse la canzone, all’incirca nel 1979, a Marley era già stato diagnosticato il cancro che lo avrebbe condotto alla morte,  un tema chiaramente presente in quest’album e in particolare in questa canzone.
