Watch Paul McCartney, Colbie Caillat, Natasha Bedingfield and Sean Paul in 'Love Song to the Earth' video

Paul McCartney stars in the new video for "Love Song to the Earth," an all-star collaboration recorded in the lead-up to the Paris climate conferences. While the lyric video was unveiled in September, McCartney, along with Colbie Caillat, Sean Paul, Natasha Bedingfield and Q'orianka Kilcher, appear in the song's proper video exploring the beauty of the planet and the potential ravages of climate change. The video follows an accord that aims to cut greenhouse gas emissions.



In the Trey Fanjoy-directed video, which premiered earlier this month at the COP21 conference in front of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and other world leaders, McCartney sings his verses while strolling alone on the beach and gazing out toward the ocean. Award-winning cinematographer Louis Schwartzberg contributes the stunning images of nature in the video.



"I'm glad to be a part of 'Love Song to the Earth,' aiming to inspire people across the world to urge their leaders to act on climate change," McCartney said in a statement prior to the Paris climate talks. "We need to be fast and efficient, switching to renewable energy and eating less meat, for example. Big decisions will be made this week, so I am doing everything I can to make sure governments sign up to an agreement, which can protect our planet. Now is the time to act. So please spread the woes and help keep our planet safe!"



"Love Song to the Earth," which is available for purchase, was penned by Toby Gad, John Shanks, Bedingfield and Paul and also features Jon Bon Jovi, Sheryl Crow, Fergie Leona Lewis, Goo Goo Dolls' Johnny Rzeznik, Angelique Kidjo, Nicole Scherzinger, Kelsea Ballerini, Krewella and Victoria Justice. Proceeds from the sale of the video benefit Friends of the Earth and the UN Foundation.



"We wanted to create a song to unify voices in a positive uplifting chorus to support the world's leaders as they gather in Paris this December," Jerry Cope, the song's executive director and co-director/producer of the video, told Rolling Stone in September. "We wanted to finally forge a binding ambitious global climate treaty to address carbon emissions and anthropogenic [effects] that is resulting from human behavior climate change."

Instagram media by treyfanjoyofficial - Paul McCartney was the first artist to step up & graciously give his time for our Love Song To The Earth music video. Sir Paul arrived alone and sailed his own boat to our secret location. No manager, no assistant, no entourage!! This rock legend showed up totally alone for our shoot. He was always my favorite Beatle - but that made him the coolest! My pal Jerry Cope & I have been working for months on this project to bring international awareness to the need for a global climate treaty. Despite the tragic terrorist attacks - the video will make its debut in Paris at the United Nations Climate Change Conference that begins next week.  I'm so excited to watch it all come together. Thank you Paul for your spirit & kindness. You are more than a great musician - you're a great humanitarian! Love & gratitude to the friends who have given their time & talent to Love Song.
