Climate change isn’t an easy thing to write a song about, unless you’re into really depressing lyrics... And who needs those bad vibes? But there are some artists who are accepting the cold hard truth and stepping up to make a difference, whether it’s through music, donations or organizations. The most important thing is that they’re using their platform to raise awareness among their many followers.
The 1975 recently did this with their newest self-titled song from their upcoming 2020 album Notes On a Conditional Form, for which they enlisted teen activist Greta Thunberg, who gives a speech urging the world to “wake up” over the band's instrumentation. Jaden Smith has made it his goal to help with the Flint water crisis and even founded his own sustainable water company, Just Water. Additionally, Lil Dicky enlisted every A-lister there is to be featured on his track and animated music video for “Earth,” in hopes of garnering attention of fans everywhere.
