“Redemption Song” is the final track on Bob Marley & the Wailers' ninth and final album made when Marley was alive, Uprising.

Unlike most of Marley’s works, “Redemption Song” is a strictly solo acoustic track with no sign of the reggae style present in nearly everything else he has made. Instead, it is a deeply contemplative and personal song that evoked the sound and style of another Bob: Bob Dylan. Nonetheless, an alternate version with a full band arrangement was eventually released as a bonus track on the 2001 reissue of Uprising and the compilation One Love: The Very Best of Bob Marley & The Wailers.

The song is considered one of Marley’s seminal works, with Rolling Stone having listed it as #66 among The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Some key lyrics derived from a speech given by the Pan-Africanist orator Marcus Garvey.
