Pop Music's Biggest Stars Collaborate on "Love Song For the Earth"

September 4, 2015

Where else besides a GRAMMYs reception are you going to find Paul McCartney, Sheryl Crowe, Jon Bon Jovi and Fergie in the same setting? Well, in an effort to increase awareness and inspire action on the issue of climate change, those pop music powerhouses, in collaboration with Colbie Caillat, Natasha Bedingfield, Leona Lewis, Sean Paul, Johnny Rzeznik, Krewella, Angelique Kidjo, Kelsea Ballerini, Nicole Scherzinger, Christina Grimmie, Victoria Justice and Q’Orianka Kilcher, came together to record Love Song To The Earth. TuneCore is absolutely honored to have been chosen as the digital distributor of this wonderful single!

With the intention of bringing the issue of climate change to the forefront of a new audience, songwriter and producer Toby Gad said, “When the UN asked me to write a song about climate change I felt honored and inspired. So, my friends and I wrote Love Song to The Earth, focusing on a positive message about how precious our only planet is. We went on to produce the all-star version of ‘Love Song’ for a September 2015 release. Jerry Cope, a dedicated activist and powerful visionary, was instrumental in pulling the strings together for the single and masterminding the videos. I hope this song will broaden the audience for this urgent message and give the politicians emotional support for meaningful climate agreement in Paris 2015.”

Gad refers to COP21, which entails the gathering of more than 190 world leaders this December in Paris. The goal being to sign a ‘meaningful, universal global agreement on climate change.’

Apple, the artists, producers (Toby Gad and John Shanks) and directors of Love Song Project will be donating their respective proceeds to Friends of the Earth U.S. and the United Nations Foundation.

As an artist and/or music fan, you can participate in today’s worldwide release by downloading the track on iTunes and taking to social media, using #ShareTheLoveSong. So go out and inspire change!
