Internationally renowned artists have released a song urging world leaders to reach an effective global agreement during the United Nations climate conference in December.

Twelve musical acts, including Sir Paul McCartney, Jon Bon Jovi, Leona Lewis and UN Goodwill Ambassador Angelique Kidjo, released the single ‘Love Song to the Earth,’ which is available to download from iTunes and Apple Music.

The artists, producers and directors of the song – as well as Apple – are donating their respective proceeds to Friends of the Earth US and the UN Foundation.

The song aims to reach new audiences with the message that the time to act on climate change is now. Listeners are encouraged to share the song and to sign a petition that will be delivered to world leaders at the beginning of the Paris climate conference.
