Exodus is the ninth studio album released by Bob Marley and The Wailers following 1976’s Rastaman Vibration.
After the assassination attempt on Bob in December 1976, he left Jamaica for London where he recorded Exodus. Unlike previous albums, Exodus thematically moves away from cryptic story-telling; instead it revolves around themes of change, religious politics, and sex. The album is split into two halves: the first half revolves around religious politics, while the second half is focused on themes of sex and keeping faith. Marley had conceived Exodus as the album title before even writing the song.
The album was a success both critically and commercially and received gold certifications in the US, UK and Canada, and was the vehicle that propelled Marley to international stardom.
