As we reported back in June, British songstress Laura Marling recorded a couple of songs at Jack White’s Nashville studio while she was on tour in the U.S. a while back. No release date was set at the time, nor was a tracklist announced, but it seems the wait is finally over. Marling’s contribution to Third Man Records’ Blue Series will feature two covers: Jackson C. Frank’s “Blues Run the Game,” and Neil Young’s “The Needle and the Damage Done.” Jack White produced the session. The single ships on November 9. And if you happen to be in Marling’s hometown of London (lucky you), you can pick up one of the 100 tri-color versions of the record, on sale at Rough Trade East on Saturday, November 13.

Hey Alex   thanks for your ththougs. GetUp definitely fits in with your analogy of a SWAT team; as it can bring momentum, urgency and attention that helps long-term campaigns get over the finish line to win. AYCC is slightly different in that we do short-term reactive campaigning but also long-term cultural change (for example through the schools program, and summits like regional Power Shifts); and at its core is turning a demographic/ community (young people) into a constituency. This means a lot more of AYCC’s work is (or tries to be) reaching NEW people and converting them into people who care, and act, on climate change. AYCC tries to constantly broaden the base of youth who understand and feel the urgency of climate change. Whereas the big NGOs, GetUp and even to some extent the CAGs work with existing progressive/ environmental constituencies and mobilise them. Does that make sense? I think it’s an important difference. Definitely agree with your point re: respecting the people involved in the movement at all levels and not approaching these issues from a place of superiority and judgment. There are amazing organisers and campaigners inside all organisations and we all have struggles and challenges to deal with! Anna
