The clock is ticking - there is not much time left if we want to avoid a climate catastrophe: for this reason, former UN secretary general and Nobel peace prize winner Kofi Annan invited world renowned artists to come together and record a song for the next upcoming climate conference this December in Copenhagen. Just to name a few, stars such as Duran Duran, Lily Allen, Jamie Cullum, Youssou N’Dour and Mark Ronson collaborated on a special interpretation of Midnight Oil’s 1987 hit “Beds are Burning” –a song about preserving nature. Germany’s invitation went to none other than Klaus Meine. “It was a huge honor to be invited by Kofi Annan. There are not only a dozen worldwide respected musical artists involved in the project, even Nobel peace prize winner Bishof Tatu was in the studio!”
