Band collaborate with Free Tibet in protest against China
Cornershop have posted the video for their new single ‘Don’t Shake It (Let It Free)’ online – scroll down and click to watch.
The band worked on the video for the track with the non-profit organisation Free Tibet, which campaigns to bring an end to the country’s occupation by China and fights for rights on behalf of Tibetans.
The video features footage of the recent protests in Tibet which have coincided with the 60th anniversary of China‘s invasion of the country and are caused by belief that the government are suppressing Tibetan culture, with the BBC reporting that a Tibetan monk had burnt himself to death in Sichuan last week (August 15).
The release date of ‘Don’t Shake It (Let It Free)’ is September 19. It is the final single to be taken from ‘Cornershop And The Double ‘O’ Groove Of’, the band’s collaborative LP with Bubbley Kaur which was released earlier this year and was the follow-up to their 2009 effort ‘Judy Sucks A Lemon For Breakfast’.
