Paul McCartney Launches New Music Video To Support The Fight Against Climate Change

LEGENDARY musician Paul McCartney has teamed up with new climate change organisation, Surfers For Climate for the world exclusive music video premiere for Wine Dark Open Sea on Thursday, November 5 on

McCartney’s love of the ocean led him to collaborate with award-winning surfing filmmaker, Jack McCoy for the second time following the release of the video for Blue Sway, which won ‘Best Music Video awards’ at major film festivals around the world.

“I’m thrilled to support Surfers For Climate. Their work is something that really appeals to me as we all have a responsibility to do our bit and this is a great way to bring people together with a shared passion for the seas and oceans from all around the world for positive climate action,” says McCartney.

“It’s an honour to again work with the most influential artist in the modern world and to have him support such a great cause to raise awareness on the importance of acting now in the fight against climate change. It is our duty to protect our environment and limit the impact we make as humans,” says McCoy.

The video features former champion surfer and Surfers For Climate co-founder, Belinda Baggs. McCoy says the video takes viewers on a journey and appeals for them to open up their hearts to the ocean.

“I love the video that my friend and surf filmmaker, Jack McCoy has created for this. The striking footage of pro longboarder, Belinda Baggs and her dance on water is a powerful reminder of how incredible our oceans are and that they need our help to protect them and preserve their wonder for generations to come,” says McCartney.

“Every time I watch the video I get goosebumps, we believe people will connect with the video to make a conscious effort to support our fight against climate change,” says Baggs.

“For surfers, the ocean is life. Climate change, fuelled by fossil fuels, threatens everyone’s way of life. Our goal is simple, we want to pass on a healthy ocean to the generations to come.”

The video will premiere exclusively on on Thursday, November 5 at 7pm AEDT. If you can’t watch the premiere, the video will be available to view On Demand exclusively on the platform for three months.

Viewers can view the premiere for a $5 donation that will go towards supporting two of their partner organisations, Surfrider Foundation Australia and Seed Mob.
