Legendary reggae band The Wailers has released their first new album in more than 25 years. 

The new Sony Music Latin album, One World, has 14 songs, including the single “One World, One Prayer” produced by Emilio Estefan. 

Also featured on the new album include Julian Marley, Natiruts, Emily Estefan, Kush Gad and Frederic Yonnet, among others. 

“The band is excited and can’t wait for the release. It’s a great album. We give thanks to everyone who has paved the way for our future. My father Aston (Familyman) Barrett has been a great inspiration and teacher, who guided me to this point where we were able to meet Emilio Estefan. Now we have a first class album which we are all proud of,” said Aston Barrett Jr. 

The Wailers’ history is of course tied to the iconic Bob Marley, whose Bob Marley and the Wailers band recorded and toured from 1972 to 1981. 

The new members of the group today include a mix of existing members, their children and new additions like the aforementioned Estefans. 

They include producer Aston Barrett Jr; guitarists Donald Kinsey and Wendel “Junior Jazz” Ferraro; lead vocalist Josh David Barrett; and Owen ‘Dreadie’ Reid and Andres Lopez, among others.
