Watch the Surreal Animated Video for Bob Marley's "Redemption Song" 40th Anniversary

Clip is the first installment in a year-long celebration of late legend's 75th birthday

The Marley family, Universal Music and Island Records have teamed up to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Bob Marley & the Wailers' "Redemption Song" with an inspirational video.

Created by French artists Octave Marsal and Theo De Gueltzl, the clip features nearly 3,000 original drawings that represent the song's message of emancipation. Jamaican imagery fills the screen as a powerful lion wears a crown, eventually growing wings and flying away from a kingdom. Marley can be seen strumming an acoustic guitar filled with flowers.
