Pharrell Williams, Stormzy, Tiwa Savage Team Up for First-Ever Global Citizen Album
“For hundreds of years, we have witnessed the power of music in bringing people together.”
Music and advocacy have always been at the core of the Global Citizen movement, and now there’s an official soundtrack to accompany all the progress that’s being made in the fight to end extreme poverty by 2030.
The Global Citizen EP 1, available for pre-order Tuesday and launching on all streaming platforms Friday, Nov. 30, includes four new tracks featuring Pharrell Williams, Stormzy, Wizkid, and Cassper Nyovest, among many others, and was overseen by Chris Martin, the curator of Global Citizen’s annual live music festivals.
Throughout the EP, galvanizing messages for change and hope can be heard amid a blend of global sounds. The words of human rights legend Nelson Mandela even appear on the opening track, “Rise UP,” while the music video for “E-Lo” was inspired by the former South African president’s life.
