R.E.M. lead singer Michael Stipe recently released his debut solo single “Future If Future” on 12-inch climate-friendly bioplastic vinyl.
“Future If Future” marks the first of its kind release to be made commercially available in the music industry.
Produced by Brian Eno, the split single also features “Oh My Heart” by Beatie Wolfe.
Proceeds from the sale of the single will benefit Eno’s environmental charity EarthPercent.
A limited edition of 500 copies has already been sold out via Bandcamp.
Both tracks are still available digitally as part of a wider-ranging Earth Day charity compilation album also featuring songs from Peter Gabriel, Big Thief, and Hot Chip.
The compilation album contains more than 120 tracks. The record is available as a standalone item for £25.
“Evolution music biolp bioplastic 12″ is a revolutionary moment for both the music industry and record collectors, offering a non-fossil fuel future for physical recordings,” EarthPercent wrote on Instagram.
