Paul McCartney is among the all-star contributors on a new single titled "Love Song to the Earth." Recorded as a charity effort to raise awareness about climate change, the song features a host of big name pop and country artists like Jon Bon Jovi, Sheryl Crow and Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie.
According to a news release posted Sept. 4 at the official website of Paul McCartney, the project's aim is to support the United Nations Foundation in their bid to achieve a global climate change agreement to be signed by governments at a Paris conference in December and all funds raised from the song will go to aid the environmental organization Friends of the Earth in their efforts to promote clean energy.
"Love Song to the Earth" received contributions from an eclectic international group of artists, which along with the ex-Beatle includes: Colbie Caillat, Natasha Bedingfield, Leona Lewis, Goo Goo Dolls frontman Johnny Rzeznik and ex-Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger, among others. The song was co-produced by longtime Bon Jovi associate John Shanks and Los Angeles based producer Tony Gad (Fergie/Beyonce) and was also co-penned by Shanks and Gad along with help from Bedingfield and Jamaican pop-rapper Sean Paul.
"Love Song to Earth" is currently available in digital format here. The song will be available on all major music distribution and streaming services on Sept. 11 in conjunction with the release of an official lyric video, which has been produced and directed by Jerry Cope. Fans who support the project are also asked to sign a petition supporting the effort to be presented at the climate conference.
