Third World - Good Hearted People - Dub Architect Remix -WEB

Third Worldย may haveย just celebrated 40 years together as a band last year, but they certainly don’t seem like they’re approaching middle age. Continuing to release music and tour internationally even today, the legendary reggae ensemble is busy promoting the upcoming release of their 21st (!) studio album, Under The Magic Sun, out June 10. To mark the occasion, founding memberย Cat Cooreย will be paying us a visit on this Thursday’s edition of the LargeUp Sessionsโ€”and we have an exclusive dub remix to share (courtesy of the Dub Architect) of their single with Capleton, “Good Hearted People.”

Coore, a classically trained cellist who’s been known to bust out a little Bachย at Third World shows, has definitely earned his place on our Top Ten Reggae Guitarists list. With gigs in some of reggae’s most famous bandsโ€”he also played withย Inner Circle before founding Third Worldโ€”as well as a solo career, Coore has helped expand the genre’s classic sound with his pop-, soul-, and rock-influenced playing.

His continuing work in Third World comes in the wake of frontman William “Bunny Rugs” Clarke’sย passing this past Februaryโ€”the group had already started working on this release prior to his passing. “Good Hearted People,” originally released in 2010, features Rugs on vocals alongside Capletonโ€”listen below, and don’t forget to tune in this Thursday, May 15, on
