Watch Lady Moon & The Eclipse's New Video For 'Global Warning'

Just in time for Earth Day.

Brooklyn-based outfit Lady Moon & The Eclipse, who we've previously covered for their blend of R&B and afrobeat, are back with the new single, "Global Warning."

The song and music video, which we're premiering today for Earth Day, is a head-nodder anchored by a heavy funk bass line and led by vocalist Lady Moon's (Ngonda Badila) lyrics about our drastically changing environment.

The new video for "Global Warning," directed by James Kwan, is a shape-shifting affair that cycles through colorful animated drawings and collage-like scenes of Lady Moon dancing in front of different habitats.


"This song was manifested on behalf of our Mother Earth! This is a call to action song for environmental justice," Lady Moon tells OkayAfrica via e-mail. "I wrote this song with a feeling of rage. I am mad that there are major industrial corporations that don't care about the environment, I'm mad that people don't care about the environment."

"The plants, the animals, and the whole planet overall has to suffer because of not enough care and concern from the people. We hope this song will shake people up to act and become more aware of the environmental health of their communities, cities, and our planet."

Watch our premiere of the new music video for "Global Warning" below. The new single is available now and they're finishing production on their new album, Journey To The Cosmic Soul, following their succesfully funded Kickstarter.
