Music lovers around the world are eagerly awaiting the premier of the Bob Marley biopic One Love. It’s been more than 40 years since the Jamaican king of reggae music died and left the world bereft at the loss of this musical genius.
The movie is the first-ever cinematic portrayal of Bob Marley’s life and music, showing his journey through adversity and the birth of his revolutionary music. Produced in collaboration with the Marley family, the film stars Kingsley Ben-Adir as the iconic musician and Lashana Lynch as his wife Rita. The movie opens on February 14.
To celebrate the release of One Love, House of Marley has announced the launch of a limited-edition Stir It Up turntable, the brand’s signature Bluetooth record player. With the movie title and specific product number laser etched into the turntable’s bamboo plinth, each of the 250 available turntables will ship with a certificate of authenticity.
The limited-edition Bob Marley: One Love Stir It Up Wireless turntable is made from solid bamboo and other environmentally conscious materials. Bob Marley was passionate about the environment and the brand committed itself to providing sustainable audio products that they hoped would meet with Bob’s approval.
The turntable incorporates innovative elements such as REGRIND silicone, REWIND fabric, recycled plastic, and recyclable aluminum. The brand says that the materials play a pivotal role in a cleaner manufacturing process, conserving natural resources, and reducing waste within the consumer electronics market.
In a significant stride toward global environmental stewardship, the House of Marley initiated Project Marley in collaboration with the non-profit organization, One Tree Planted. This has resulted in the planting of more than 400,000 trees in areas worldwide in need of restoration, contributing substantially to sustainable practices and the revitalization of forests.
Ziggy Marley, son of Bob and a producer of Bob Marley: One Love said: “Audiences will witness an intimate portrayal of my father’s life—an inspiring journey of overcoming adversity and the creation of his revolutionary music. It’s a rare opportunity to gain insight into Bob Marley’s creative genius.”
Ziggy added: “House of Marley’s Limited Edition turntable echoes Bob’s principles, creating a haven for fans to immerse themselves in an album from start to finish. It becomes a tangible extension of Bob Marley’s journey, seamlessly complementing the cinematic exploration. Once you listen to vinyl, the quality and warmth you feel is a totally different experience.’
