Bjork with a post on her social networks announces the arrival of oral the new song made with Rosalia.
Proceeds from the single will go towards a campaign against industrial salmon aquaculture.
I’m so happy to announce the release of the single “oral” with @rosalia all profits will go towards stopping open net fish farming in Iceland.
This is a 25 year old song of mine that I wrote and programmed inspired by a dancehall rhythm (the grandmother of reggaeton)
Rosalia’s experiments with the genre and her incredible voice made her an obvious guest for the song.
I feel lucky that she said yes and that she and her team are donating their labor and all profits to this fight.
I think somehow there’s an elegant resonance between both of our voices being the same age on the recording.
We have a team of people from Iceland’s largest environmental groups and lawyers who will be handling other open net fish farming cases, I would like to thank them all for all their hard volunteer work.
Industrial salmon farming in open net pens is harmful to the environment. farmed salmon go through immense suffering and cause serious damage to our planet. this is an extraordinarily cruel way of preparing food. the fight against the open mesh pen industry is part of the fight for the future of the planet.
One of the most serious environmental challenges facing the North this century is ocean acidity. In the space of 5 years, the Norwegian offshore fish farming of the companies MOWI and SalMar has already damaged large areas in our fjords, both marine life, animals and plants, which will attribute it.
We can still reverse this situation. our legal cases on biodiversity, animal cruelty and more could become exemplary cases around the world.
