Jamaica’s Jimmy Cliff Has a New Single

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 8, 2021

Jamaica native and global music legend Jimmy Cliff has released his first new music in four years. 

It’s called “Human Touch,” and it’s a new single and video aimed at promoting “human interaction” amid the realities of the pandemic. 

“As an African descendant, I am blessed and happy to display our unique human story of survival and triumph and to clothe this stage of my musical journey in the great achievements & lessons of Ancient Egyptian enlightenment that has so influenced the recent centuries of human civilization as reflected in obelisks and other Pharaonic monuments in the major cities and culture of the ‘new world’,” Cliff said. 

Cliff is a member of the pantheon of Jamaican music, alongside reggae pioneers like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Toots Hibbert and Bunny Wailer. 

He helped turn reggae into a global art form, and is one of only two Jamaican Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, alongside Marley. 

In 2012, he won the Reggae Grammy for his album, Rebirth
