Michael Stipe muove i suoi primi passi da solista. Per quanto potrebbe sembrarvi assurdo, l’artista statunitense ha pubblicato soltanto oggi, sabato 5 ottobre, il suo primo singolo in solitaria intitolato Your Capricious Soul.
Il pezzo di Michael Stipe non è per il momento disponibile su nessuna piattaforma di streaming. L’unico modo che potete avere di ascoltarlo è quello di scaricarlo dal suo sito ufficiale a questo link.
Il brano è interamente a scopo benefico. I proventi dall’acquisto verranno devoluti a Extinction Rebellion, il movimento ambientalista nato lo scorso anno e sostenuto anche da Greta Thunberg e Noam Chomsky, in previsione della manifestazione mondiale “International Rebellion” in programma il 7 ottobre

We are excited to announce that today sees the release of Michael’s single “Your Capricious Soul,” his solo debut– currently available exclusively from MichaelStipe.com (Link in bio). The release is timed to coincide with October 7th’s “International Rebellion” climate justice protests. And, for the following 365 days, Michael is redirecting all of his earnings from sales and synchronization licensing to Extinction Rebellion to help aid their work of non-violent protest of government inaction to the climate emergency. The track release is accompanied by a striking video work by acclaimed artist and filmmaker @samtaylorjohnson . The download is priced at 77 cents but those who prefer to give more can enter an amount of their own choosing. A free download option is also included. In explaining why he’s chosen to present this latest musical work in this way, Michael says, “I took a long break from music, and I wanted to jump back in. I love “Your Capricious Soul” – it’s my first solo work. I want to add my voice to this exciting shift in consciousness. Extinction Rebellion gave me the incentive to push the release and not wait. Our relationship to the environment has been a lifelong concern, and I now feel hopeful—optimistic, even. I believe we can bring the kind of change needed to improve our beautiful planet earth, our standing and our place on it.” Feel free to set your own price as a donation to Extinction Rebellion. The “Your Capricious Soul” download includes a master-quality audio version of the song, the video, Stipe’s lyric document, a print-ready poster, stencil and an animated flip-book portrait.
