Julian Lennon - Saltwater 25 (Digital Download) *note for mobile devices
Julian has re-recorded Saltwater to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its release with a proportion of the proceeds going to The White Feather Foundation.
MP3 + WAV (high resolution audio) + Artwork included.
Produced by Lennon and Justin Clayton, mixed by Andreas Ahlenius, and mastered by Björn Engelman, “Saltwater” was co-written with longtime collaborator Mark Spiro and Leslie Spiro in 1990, and was Lennon’s first stand on environmental conservation and the plight of indigenous peoples of the world. The single originally peaked at #6 on the UK singles chart and was certified platinum in Australia topping the singles chart for four weeks, as well as hitting Top 10 Radio throughout the rest of Asia & Europe.
Julian says of the new song:
'I felt that after 25 Years of watching what’s been happening to Our Mother & All of Her Children, that I owed it not only to Myself, but to everyone, in many respects, to rerecord this song of sympathy/empathy, this Philanthropic Anthem, for future generations that hadn’t heard it before… And as a Shy & introspective Man myself, who has no political agendas, the only way to make My Voice truly heard in Life’s Arena, was to sing this song again, with a more appropriate, & more modern take on Today’s World, because it seems to me, and many others, that the World is 25 times worse than it was 25 years ago, on a Humanitarian & Environmental level… Hopefully, ‘Saltwater25’ can bring around that awareness of what We’re doing again, and maybe, just maybe, change a few minds into making some major changes, for the betterment of all…'
