Listen to Neil Young’s recently released short instrumental track, which he described as a “love letter” to Earth, in support of the global climate strikes.
The short track is an 87-second piece titled “A love letter from us – Thanks for being our home” and it includes the message, “Earth – where we live / so far… / so good.”
The track is available below.
Young has been a strong advocator of climate change activism for many years. In 2016, he spoke out against how they treated the protesters against the Dakota Access pipeline at Standing Rock and released the song “Indian Givers.”
“Your growing activism in support of freedom over repression, addressing climate change, swiftly replacing a destructive old industries with safe, regenerative energy, encouraging wholistic thinking in balance with the future of our planet — that activism will strengthen and shed continued light on us all,” he wrote separately. “These worthy goals must be met for the all the worlds children and theirs after them. … Unintimidated, stand, speak up and show up. Be counted. Be like our brothers and sisters at Standing Rock. Be there if you can. The progress we have made over two hundred and forty years as a nation, has always come first from the people.”
While last year he attacked US President Donald Trump after his home was caught in the California wildfires.
“California is vulnerable – not because of poor forest management as DT (our so-called president) would have us think.”
“We are vulnerable because of climate change. The extreme weather events and our extended drought is part of it.”
