  • Massive Attack have shared a new film about climate change. The video was made in collaboration with the Tyndall Centre For Climate Change Research, which the band officially commissioned for research last year. The resulting video was meant to debut at a special concert in Liverpool this year—in collaboration with the city and Ecotricity—but was called off because of the coronavirus pandemic. "As well as the havoc the pandemic reaps across our lives, there's also the opportunity within that enforced hiatus to reflect and to change," says Massive Attack bandleader Robert Del Naja. "We came to the realization that our industry couldn't or wouldn't move fast enough for live music to play its part in rapid decarbonization, so we opted to design that change ourselves to put together the identities and circumstances to push for it and show that it's possible." Earlier this year, Massive Attack released an EP called EUTOPIA. Watch the video, which was produced by Unit 3 Films.
