A poem recorded by legendary singer Jim Morrison shortly before he died is to be released as a song to raise awareness of climate
change. Recorded by the former Doors frontman in Paris in 1971, it will be released as a single in April. The poem, Woman in the
Window has been released by Morrison's estate and put to music by stars including New Order and Perry Farrell, the former singer
with la band Jane's Addiction. The single will receive its first play in London via a satellite link from
Dan Morrell, the founder of the us pressure group Global Cool, said Morrison's lyrics give an eerie warning of the risks of global warming. He said the song which features the chorus "Just try to stop us, we're going to love", is written from the perspective of an angel sent to Earth to advise the human race about perils they face. Morrell said: "It's very strange to hear this thing recorded more than 30 years ago that seems so relevant to the environmental challenge we face."
The Global Cool campaign aims to save a billion tonnes of carbon emissions via awareness on simple steps people can take to change their behaviour.
