The magic of Disney meets the magical isle of Jamaica, as Walt Disney Records readies an album of classic Disney songs newly recorded by a cross-section of top reggae musicians.

The Disney Reggae Club features songs from immortal Disney animated films — from The Little Mermaid to Jungle Book — recorded by Grammy winning reggae legend Toots (of Toots & the Maytals fame), five-time Grammy winner Ziggy Marley, reggae’s most prolific and long lasting production team Sly & Robbie, multiple Grammy winner Cedella Marley, Grammy winner Burning Spear, legendary British band UB40 and Hasidic rapper Matisyahu.

The album is set to arrive in stores and at online retailers June 8.
