.@BobMarley’s “Three Little Birds” Featured In Upcoming @SongBird Movie’s Trailer


Covid 19 has set the world back a whole lot, and has everyone adjusting to a “New norm“. From closures of many avenues of entertainment and business, to our wardrobes now including face masks, we’re just doing what we can to stay safe and not become a statistic. For Filmmaker Michael Bay, movie making will not slow down on his watch, and has announced his upcoming movie, “Songbird“. Its trailer on the other hand, features a Bob Marley classic.

The featured track is Bob Marley’s 1980 hit, “Three Little Birds“. Produced by Bob Marley And The Wailers, the track was featured on classic “Exodus” album, and still remains a favourite for many worldwide. The song was recently covered by Bob Marley’s Grandson Skip Marley for the “School Of Rock” music education program. We highlighted it being covered by Maroon 5 a couple years ago for a Hyundai commercial. “Songbird” is described as a “Pandemic Thriller” that gives viewers another reality of the Covid 19 Pandemic, and it has since caused a stir on Social Media. Many have voiced that Michael Bay probably didn’t read the room when he put this together, but nonetheless, it will have explosions. Thanks to “Songbird”, “Three Little Birds” was given the same remix treatment as The Luniz’sI Got 5 On It” from the trailer of the Horror flick “US“.
