Channel News Asia: NEA releases first ‘green’ music album
SINGAPORE: The National Environment Agency (NEA) has released the first official Clean and Green Singapore music album.
Entitled Eco Music Challenge Season 1, it said the music album hopes to touch the heart of every individual in the community, encouraging them to safeguard and cherish Singapore’s beautiful environment.
The music album comprises 15 environment tracks of different music genres and languages, ranging from jazz, pop and soft rock to contemporary folk.
These are original compositions by the selected 13 finalists of NEA’s inaugural Eco Music Challenge held last year to inspire the youths to show their appreciation for the environment through music.
Chief Executive Officer of NEA, Andrew Tan, said the album is uniquely Singapore, produced by youths, for youths. He added that just as Total Defence is the nation’s responsibility, environmental protection is the duty of every Singaporean.
NEA hoped to raise S$10,000 from the album sales to support the environmental initiatives of the Nature Society.
Proceeds from the album sales will go to the society’s activities of nature appreciation and nature study at Semakau Landfill.
Songs from the Eco Music Challenge album are available for download at S$0.99 per song or S$9.90 for the full album download at http://www.nea.ecomusic.sg. It is also on sale as a hardcopy compilation album at the NEA’s Customer Service Centre at S$11.90.
