Greta Thunberg Lends Her Voice to The 1975's New Song: "Everything Needs to Change"

By

Nobel Peace Prize nominee, TIME Next Generation Leader, and now... rock band member? 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg just lent her voice to a new song by The 1975, which will be the opening track on the band's upcoming album, Notes on a Conditional Form. The song, aptly titled "The 1975," is an instrumental track, featuring Thunberg's voice reciting a poetic speech.

As noted by Pitchfork, many of Greta's words in "The 1975" come from a speech she made at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January 2019. "The 1975" is not the type of song you would rock out to on the dance floor (well, maybe at my birthday party), but rather the type of song that you listen to and feel inspired to do your part to fight the climate crisis.
