Lil Dicky, multi-platinum recording artist, releases new single “Earth” along with a short film for the song. The single was produced by Lil Dicky’s close friends, Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat. The team got together to bring some of music’s biggest stars to join the “Freak Friday” artist with cameos to celebrate Earth Day and bring awareness to the climate change crisis.
When discussing his reason behind the song Lil Dicky said, “Like a lot of people, I had a vague idea that something bad was happening here on Earth, but I didn’t really realize how insane our climate crisis is and how screwed humanity is about to be,” says Lil Dicky. “It’s full-on crazy! If we don’t get our act together now, and change a lot about our fundamental behavior, Earth will become unlivable alarmingly soon. Why did it take me so long to get wind of this? I feel like everybody on the planet should be talking about this 24/7. But that’s not the case. So I wanted to make the most entertaining and epic piece of content possible, to get everyone aware and talking. Because it’s now or never… Let’s save the Earth! We love the Earth!!!!”
A collaboration was made with the Leonard DiCaprio Foundation (LDF) so that a portion of profits from the song, music video. and merchandise associated with the project will be given to certain nonprofits that were selected by LDF as being on the front lines of implementing solutions to climate change.
Along with the song and video, the “Earth” project also includes an interactive website “We Love the Earth.” The purpose for the website is to educate the public on the realities of climate change . Visit www.welovetheearth.org for more information.
