One full year ago, Natasha Bedingfield debuted a new song called “Love Song To The Earth” when she performed it live at the United Nations 2014 Equator Prize Gala. It’s an inspirational plea to keep the world clean and safe, and Natasha wrote it with Toby Gad specifically for that event.
Now the song has finally been released in studio quality…. with a little help from her friends! Joining Natasha Bedingfield are more than a dozen well-known artists: Paul McCartney, Jon Bon Jovi, Fergie, Sheryl Crow, Leona Lewis, Colbie Caillat, Sean Paul, Johnny Rzeznik, Krewella, Angélique Kidjo, Kelsea Ballerini, Nicole Scherzinger, Christina Grimmie, Victoria Justice, and Q’orianka Kilcher are all featured.
As the official “Love Song To The Earth” website states:
Some of the world’s biggest names in music have joined voices to inspire real action on climate change, and to support the United Nations’ call for a meaningful, universal climate agreement in Paris this December.
Every time the song is purchased, streamed, or shared, the royalties go directly towards the efforts of Friends of the Earth to keep fossil fuels in the ground and lower carbon emissions, and to the work of the U.N. Foundation to inspire international action on climate change.
You can see the lyric video from Apple Music below:
Co-writer Toby Gad said, “I hope this song will broaden the audience for this urgent message and give the politicians emotional support for meaningful climate agreement in Paris.” Natasha Bedingfield, who also co-wrote the song, added:
Many people turn a blind eye, arguing that everything is OK environmentally. The song reminds us that having ownership of our world means taking care of it. With this song we wanted to talk about the environment in a way that would help people feel empowered to do something rather than be paralyzed by fear.
