Former Beatle Paul McCartney and an eclectic crew that includes Colbie Caillat and Natasha Bedingfield urge viewers to save the planet in a new music video for “Love Song to the Earth,” a climate change charity single billed as “the first song that earns royalties for Earth.”
The song’s impact is reinforced visually with Louie’s vast arsenal of magnificent vistas, lush forests and stunning footage of nature reminding us to protect that which we love.

The star-studded production, which also features voices from the unseen Jon Bon Jovi, Sheryl Crow and Fergie, premiered this month at the Paris climate change summit and will donate sales proceeds to the environmental nonprofit Friends of the Earth and the UN Foundation.
The Love Song’s creators and Apple are donating every penny that the song earns.
Every time the song is purchased, streamed, or shared, the royalties go directly towards the efforts of Friends of the Earth to keep fossil fuels in the ground and lower carbon emissions, and to the work of the U.N. Foundation to inspire international action on climate change.
