Refugee will be Jimmy Cliff’s first new album in ten years. The new record features artists Dwight Richards, Cliff’s daughter Lilty Cliff, and Wyclef Jean in the title single: "Refugee," which will be available in both a Rap Version and Dance Version.

This album comes at a significant time for Jimmy Cliff and his homeland of Jamaica. July 8, 2022 is the 50th Anniversary of The Harder They Come, a celebrated Jamaican film that starred Jimmy Cliff. He also created the soundtrack, which is said to have “brought reggae to the world.” In 2021, the album was deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry. August 6, 2022 is the 60th Anniversary of Jamaica’s Independence from the United Kingdom.
