Michael Stipe has released his new song Your Capricious Soul, his first release since the breakup of R.E.M. in 2011. The song is available to download now exclusively through his website, with proceeds from the 77-cent download benefitting Extinction Rebellion. So, if you watch the video below, head to the site and donate, cool?
Michael says, “I took a long break from music, and I wanted to jump back in. I love “Your Capricious Soul”—it’s my first solo work. I want to add my voice to this exciting shift in consciousness. Extinction Rebellion gave me the incentive to push the release and not wait. Our relationship to the environment has been a lifelong concern, and I now feel hopeful—optimistic, even. I believe we can bring the kind of change needed to improve our beautiful planet earth, our standing and our place on it.”
