Ziggy Marley has teamed up with Paul Simon, Willie Nelson, Jack Johnson and Jamie Lee Curtis to record an album of children's music.

The star, who is the son of the late Bob Marley, admitted that he produced the album of folk standards and popular Jamaican songs to inspire the younger generation.

"I never really thought about doing music for children before but I kind of realised why I'm being led into this world of family/children's music is because we have to speak to the children now," he told Billboard.

"The children have the open-mindedness. They're going to grow up and make the world a better place, so it's them we have to have some kind of discussion with."

The star also revealed plans to release a compilation of Bob Marley's music aimed at the young audience.

"It's a very different vibe, but still real Bob...It's Bob singing and I'm playing, like an acoustic session almost. Anything I did on this record is soulful and musical. There's no gimmicks. I'm keeping true to the spirit of my father, to the spirit of his music," he said.
