ANIMAL COUNTDOWN: THE NEW EP FROM NORMAN BAKER
The EP, which was recorded during the sessions for the new album by The Reform Club album, does not feature any other members of the band and is a very different sound and feel from The Reform Club. The four tracks are all acoustic, and deliberately sparse, with a nod to blues and jazz.
The title track, Animal Countdown, highlights the plight of endangered species, something Norman cares deeply about. It comes with a video, released on Youtube on the same day. Norman says: “It is shocking, and heartbreaking, to witness the sharp decline in numbers of wonderful animals like tigers and elephants. There is a real danger they may become extinct in my lifetime, bar a few in zoos. The world needs to act now to stop this happening.”
Will Travers, OBE, President of the Born Free Foundation, met Norman many years ago, and is impressed by his consistent commitment to wildlife issues. He said: “Norman is an example to us all. If we care about the plight of the natural world we can all make a difference by using our talents and a little bit of our time to show our compassion.”
Philip Mansbridge, UK Director of IFAW, said: “It’s great to see an MP so engaged in the issue of wildlife protection and fantastic to see him spreading the animal welfare message in such a creative way. We wish him every success with the EP!”
Animal Countdown is available to download on iTunes and will also be available to view on YouTube. The hard-hitting video, which has been created by independent film producer Mark Atkins to accompany the track, features footage supplied by the Born Free Foundation, which is based in Horsham.
