Razorlight frontman records solar powered song

Johnny Borrell releases track in support of Friends Of The Earth

Razorlight frontman Johnny Borrell has recorded a new “solar-powered” song in support of charity Friends Of The Earth today (May 30).

‘Funeral Blues’ exists to highlight the solutions to climate change which exist, and which could flourish if the government introduces a strong climate change law.

The Big Ask campaign is calling for a law that will commit the UK to cutting its carbon dioxide emissions by at least three per cent every year.

The track was recorded at The Premises in Hoxton, which is powered by 18 solar panels, and features just Borrell and a violinist.

The track is being premiered on Radio 1 this afternoon, after which it will be available for free download for a limited period of two weeks from The Friends Of The Earth website Foe.co.uk.
