Jimmy Cliff working on new album with Punk Rocker Tim Armstrong of Rancid [New Song Inside]

Reggae pioneer Jimmy Cliff is hard at work on his new EP and album with Tim Armstrong of the acclaimed punk rock band Rancid. The EP which is expected to be released in November, will notably include a cover of The Clash's "The Guns of Brixton". 

In a release to Stereogum, Cliff said, "The project started after someone in my management organization introduced me to Tim. The cool thing about it was that Tim knew people from the Clash, who I associated with a lot. I worked on a record with Joe Strummer shortly before he passed away. So, we knew people in common and that made it very easy at the beginning. Also, Tim is just very easy to work with. He's a very creative guy and it's just been very good - and very easy - working with him."
