Love Ssega Campaigns For Clean Air By Releasing His New Single, 'Capes For Blue Skies'

Fuelled by an issue that is very close to his heart, Love Ssega is taking a stand for clean air.


In response to his recent art project that included the single, Our World (Fighting for Air) and a 16-page comic climate manifesto that campaigns for clean air, Ssega has released Capes For Blue Skies to continue raising awareness on pollution in the city.

The former Clean Bandit frontman joined demands for a clean air charter in memory of the nine-year-old girl from Lewisham, Ella Kissi-Debrah, whose death was partly caused by pollution.

The campaign culminates in a free one-day event.


On 18 of June, Ssega will be hosting Live + Breathe, an event that aims to make noise against localised air pollution. The event sees musicians, community groups, athletes and activists from South London joining forces in Southwark Park to celebrate South London’s music, community, and culture, further emphasising the need for a solution.

 
 

Ssega has used this single to partner with frontline community groups in Lambeth and Southwark to help him tackle these issues. He's spoken to the likes of coach Nigel Whyte of Olympic-winning Peckham BMX, and Neon Elevate who have performed with the likes of Stormzy, The Young Vic, Peace Ballers and Brixton’s Poetic Unity.

The song was recorded with Southbank's Philharmonia between Abbey Road and Angel Studios with our engineer, John Barrett, who was assisted by Daniel Hayden and Marta Di Nozzi. John also mixed the single.
