Exclusive Track to Raise Funds for Wildlife Victoria
January 15, 2020
A special digital release has been announced to raise funds to help injured and displaced wildlife affected by the Australian fires.
This digital release of ‘Thylacine’ comes with an exclusive, previously unreleased track called ‘Song of Murray’s Brigade’. This is an musical adaptation of a 1940 poem by Australian bush poet Banjo Paterson. Stapleton performs acoustic guitar and vocals on the track, and acclaimed cellist Gareth Skinner also contributes a haunting performance.
Many of the Australian species that have been affected by these fires were already threatened or endangered due to factors such as habitat loss from land clearing for agriculture and urban development, and pressures from extreme heat and ongoing drought. These fires pose a huge threat for their ongoing survival, but we still have a chance to help and ensure that they don’t end up in the history books next to the thylacine (now extinct).
This digital release is available for £5, though you can pay what you want and there is no upper limit. Please give generously to help Australia’s unique wildlife.
