Let Nature Sing, a song featuring the birdsong of all different kinds of birds is tracking at Number 11 in the UK Singles Chart this week, alongside Billie Eilish, Stormzy and Taylor Swift.
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) released the song, in the hope of raising awareness for endangered birds, and it’s working!
Let Nature Sing, a song released by RSPB solely featuring birdsong is helping raise awareness for endangered birds in the UK.
Composed by Sam Lee, Bill Barclay and Adrian Thomas, the song hears from 25 different types of birds, including blackbirds, robins, woodpeckers and warblers all singing their hearts out. Each bird has its own role in the song, such as the woodpecker in the rhythm section, the booming bass of the bittern and the duet-ting cranes making up the brass section.
The RSPB hopes the video will enlighten listeners to not take for granted the beautiful nature that surrounds us, as it is under threat due to the destruction of habitats, pollution and climate change.
The RSPB’s Director of Conservation Martin Harper said in a statement:
“Over the last few days, thousands of people have bought and streamed our track to hear nature’s finest singers and show that they love bird song. This has started a national conversation as millions will have heard, seen and read the facts showing that, shockingly, nature is in crisis in the UK.
The response to “Let Nature Sing” sends a powerful message that yes, nature is amazing but it is also in trouble. The good news is that it is not too late, we know what needs to be done and together we can take action to restore it for us and for future generations.”
