New Haven, Conn. -- In honor of Earth Day, April 22, U.S. based electronica artist Ionne is advocating for positive social change through music. Earth Day marks the release of “Mountains and Trees,” the first single from his upcoming album, FOR THOSE WHO REMAIN, a collection of original songs exploring links between environmental, racial, and social justice. “Mountains and Trees” is now available on Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp, and more.
“Mountains and Trees” tells the story of a conversation between the mountains and the trees, who are estranged lovers desperate to reunite. Ionne comments, "Earth, water, air, and the creatures that move in them form an ecosystem - an energy that binds us and links us to the stars. After we've departed, and the last great wave has rippled, will the chain somehow be broken? Or will life begin anew?" Curators describe “Mountains and Trees” as a musical excursion that is perfect for a deep house after-party or for laid back personal listening.
As part of Ionne’s environmental awareness campaign, and following the Earth Day release of “Mountains and Trees,” the artist will be offering a free preview of one new song from the album each week leading up to the release of FOR THOSE WHO REMAIN on the summer solstice, June 20, 2021. Free previews and album updates will be available on Ionne’s Facebook page.
