Toots and the Maytals – Got to be Tough (PG Version)

1185 Films create new animated video for Toots & the Maytals latest single”Got To Be Tough.”

Director Nick Franco delivered the MV with PG & Adult versions within a tough 2 week schedule working with animator Juan Martin (Mr John Vanila), artist Lewis Campbell and team.

The title track comes from a full-length Toots and the Maytals project of the same name which is their first in more than 10 years and due out on August 28th via Trojan Jamaica/BMG Records, the label founded by Zak Starkey and Sshh Liguz.

“This album is speaking out about injustices while pointing to a better time,” Frederick “Toots” Hibbert told Rolling Stone.
Along with the title track, the LP will also include a cover of “Three Little Birds” in collaboration with Ziggy Marley.

We look forward to further collaborations with Toots and the Maytals and Trojan Jamaica.
