The single will be available for purchase on iTunes on September 17, 2015 - the same day that the premier of Waiting For The Warmusic video will be made available via Daniel Bambaata Marley’s social network pages. The Waiting For The War single artwork is a re-creation of Bob Marley’s Soul Rebels album cover which was released by Bob Marley & The Wailers in 1970.
Daniel Bambaata Marley comments, “Everybody has their own battle that they face daily, with one common goal – freedom. I don't believe in war...I believe in freedom. If we want to be free, we have to stand up for our rights.”
Never ceasing to push the musical boundaries that those before him have set, Daniel Bambaata Marley is showcasing his own genre-bending style with the release of, Waiting For The War.
