Traditionally the start of the albums of the English band The 1975 opens with a music called The 1975 always with the same words “Go down/Soft sound…”. For their new disc, titled Notes on a Conditional Form which should be out on February 21, 2020, that is the environmental activist Greta Thunberg, which replaces Matty Healy and delivers a speech committed. An opportunity to spread its message differently and reach a different audience.

The young Swede said he “was grateful to pass my message to a wider audience in a new way”.” I think it is great that The 1975 is so strongly committed to the climate crisis. We need to quickly get people of all strata of society to get involved. And this collaboration is something new”, she explained to the Guardian.

Greta Thunberg

In its text, the sixteen year-old, recalls the distress of climate in which the Land is located stating that the man has failed in its mission of protecting the planet. “We need to recognize that the older generations have failed. All the political movements in their current form have failed. But homo sapiens has not yet failed. Yes, we fail, but there is still time to change everything.” She went on to say that the priorities of the policies are not good, that there is no need to look away, but instead confront the problem face to face. “We are facing a disaster of suffering, unspoken for a very large number of people. And this is not the time to speak politely or to focus on what we can or can’t say. This is the time to speak clearly.” “Then, all the world outside, it is time for civil disobedience. It is time to rebel.”

All the benefits of this title, available on YouTube, go to Extenction Rebellion organization fighting for the climate. The environmental group welcomed the collaboration of the group and of the young woman he considered to be essential. “Music has the power to break down barriers, and in this moment, we really need to break some barriers if we want to face this emergency,” said the association in a press release.

This song was released in the aftermath of the speech of Greta Thunberg in the national Assembly, in front of 170 members. A speech that some right-wing politicians and extreme right have preferred boycott. The woman had preferred to be ironical on their absence. “Some people have chosen not to come to this meeting today, some people have chosen not to listen to us, she said. This is not serious. After all, we are only children, you do not have the duty to listen to us. However, you have the duty to listen to scientists, and that is all we ask of you.”

Michel Onfray, for its part, has strongly criticized the emergence of the activist taking on the personality and physique of Greta Thunberg. “It makes him think of these dolls silicone, which announce the end of the human and the advent of the posthumain. She has the face, the age, the sex, and the body of a cyborg in the third millennium: the building envelope is neutral. It is, unfortunately, what the Man is going,” he wrote in an article posted on his blog. A text that shocked many internet users.
