Last year, reggae icon Jimmy Cliff made a stunning return to music in the form of Rebirth, a lively collection of tunes produced by Rancid’s Tim Armstrong that cut right to the heart of what the island sound is all about.

Cliff’s victory lap—which included a team-up with Bruce Springsteen at SXSW and a Grammy nomination—continues this Friday, January 25, when Cliff performs on the TV show Guitar Center Sessions.

The show sets up stars in the Guitar Center in Hollywood, and so far this season has delivered dynamic sets from the likes of Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh and the reconstituted Ben Folds Five.

Check out the exclusive premiere of Cliff’s Guitar Center Sessions performance of the classic track “The Harder They Come” below.

Be sure to catch the entirety of Cliff’s performance on Guitar Center Sessions this Friday, January 25, at 9 PM on DirecTV’s Audience Network.
