In an all-too-rare example of a well known artist using their music for good and not profiteering, Sigur Rós has given the rights to the track "Með suð í eyrum" to Oxfam America for their recent fundraising video. Well done, fellas!
The band's blog says the following:
The message from Oxfam is simple:
Nearly one billion suffer from chronic hunger. The cost of food from Ethiopia to Afghanistan has nearly doubled. The situation is urgent.
One modest donation can make a difference.
Support Oxfam’s work to end hunger and poverty. You can save a life. You can make a difference.
