Earth Day Remix: Brian Eno Adds Environmental Sounds to David Bowie’s ‘Get Real’


Rate this post

It’s Earth Day today, and legendary English musician Brian Eno has given David Bowie’s 1995 deep cut ‘Get Real’ a twist by using environmental sounds. Eno has remixed the track to incorporate the cries of hyenas, rooks, and wild pigs. The Piggy Who Sold The World, anyone?

Nature as an Artist in Sounds Right Initiative

Launched by The Museum for the United Nations, Sounds Right is developed to spark a global conversation about the value of nature. It has made Nature an official artist on streaming platforms to raise money for earth conservation. A share of royalties from any song that credits Nature as an artist will go to EarthPercent, a charity founded by Eno.

Sounds Right Initiative and Conservation Efforts

The organization will distribute the funds to conservation and restoration projects in the world’s most precious ecosystems. This initiative comes at a critical time as wildlife populations have declined by nearly 70% in the past 50 years and many species are at risk of extinction.

“Throughout my life I’ve wondered — how I can return something to the places I’ve taken ideas from?” Eno said. “Sounds Right creates a system to give back to nature, helping to preserve the planet so that it can continue to inspire us for years to come.”

Alongside the ‘Get Real’ remix, Sound Right has released a compilation featuring new versions of songs by artists like Aurora, Ellie Goulding, V of BTS, and London Grammar — all crediting Nature as a featured artist.
