Bob Marley & the Wailers 1977 hit Natural Mystic hit 100 Million Milestone On Spotify. The song is the legendary Reggae band’s 13th song to surpass 100 million plays on Spotify.
First recorded in 1975 and then re-recorded in 1977 for the Exodus album at Island’s Basing Street Studios in London, Natural Mystic is a stirring anthem that distinctly captures Marley’s overarching musical mood.
The song also appeared on the Natural Mystic: The Legend Lives On collection, which peaked at No. 5 on the UK Albums Chart in June 1995. The album served as an extension to the Diamond-certified Legend collection from 1984.
While Legend predominantly featured his love-oriented tunes, The Legend Lives On delved into his more politically charged and religious-themed compositions.
It presented themes of unity and salvation on tracks like Africa Unite, societal turbulence in So Much Trouble In The World and Crazy Baldhead, and Marley’s own role as a persecuted leader in Iron Lion Zion.
However, it’s the title track Natural Mystic, that signals listeners into a contemplative sanctuary.
It’s within that intersection of deeply spiritual themes and soothing melodies that Natural Mystic endures as a timeless composition. It effectively carries the torch of Bob Marley and The Wailers’ feeling of unity and freedom, and grounds itself in an eternally relevant message.
