Isle of Wight Festival, an event that cemented its place within pop history with performances from Jimi Hendrix, The Who and Joni Mitchell, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Hendrix’s legendary headline performance was his final one in the UK and the 1970 festival was the last on the island until it was resurrected in 2002.
The English pop rock band will donate all proceeds from the song to WIRES Australian Wildlife Rescue Association. In a press statement, frontman Josh Franceschi said the track was written after the band had met with a geologist who informed them of the dire impacts of climate change. They later finished ‘Our House’ while recording in Thailand last October.
