*The Eddie Murphy/Snoop Lion reggae collabo – which they recorded back in June (footage of which surfaced on YouTube) has officially been released as a single.
On Tuesday (Sept. 4), the actor posted “Red Light” to his Soundcloud page. [Scroll down to listen.] Unlike his previous musical offerings, such as “Party All the Time,” “Red Light” is full-on, Bob Marley-styled reggae, with Murphy handling vocals and electric guitar over a breezy groove.
Recently-converted reggae disciple Snoop Lion sings a few lines toward the track’s conclusion.
Murphy announced the new track through his brand-new Twitter account. He also hyped an upcoming LP, titled “9,” though no release date was mentioned.
An official video for “Red Light” will be released on Sept. 9.
Listen to the track below.
