Festive cheer boosted with release of tongue-in-cheek Christmas single - a comedy song about rewilding our countryside (and ladygardens!)
As the festive season approaches, under this auspicious Beaver moon, comedy duo The Funny Terns are thrilled to announce the release of their debut chart-eligible single, ‘Bring Back the Beaver’ - a jovial tune about the parallels between our loss of biodiversity in the UK and the loss of popularity of pubic hair.
Spreading joy and double entendres a plenty whilst also raising funds for a noble cause, The Funny Terns celebrate the rewilding movement in an attempt to ‘get nature to number one’ this Christmas. At a trim 2 mins and 13 secs, this enchanting single captures light-hearted festive spirit whilst drawing attention to a serious environmental issue amidst a cheerful melody and cheeky yet pertinent lyrics.
What makes this release truly special is its purpose, with proceeds going directly towards environmental charity City to Sea - a UK-based organisation campaigning to stop plastic pollution at source. By supporting this initiative, listeners not only get to enjoy a humorous holiday song but also contribute to making a positive impact on the environment.
The Funny Turns frontwoman Natalie Fée has a long-standing commitment to environmental issues as an award-winning environmentalist, author, speaker and founder of City to Sea herself, which has been making a positive difference since 2015. Natalie Fée said -
"We felt that nature deserved to have the number one spot this year, and wanted to celebrate the return of the beaver to England’s rivers with a very British comic song. We’re excited to release it this Christmas and share some good tidings, while at the same time raising awareness and support for our cause,"
"We wrote ‘Bring Back the Beaver’ as a playful homage to all the hard work done by the environmental movement over the past few years to restore nature … the problem may be serious, but the solutions don’t have to be!”
Why now? In 2023 the ‘State of Nature Report’ starkly highlighted that ‘the UK is now one of the most nature-depleted countries on Earth’, and WWF’s Living Planet Report 2022 found wildlife populations around the world have declined by almost 70 percent in the past 50 years. ‘Bring Back the Beaver’ is a very British take on this devastating loss of biodiversity, whilst celebrating the rapid recovery of nature in rewilding projects around the UK.
‘Bring Back the Beaver’ is available on all major streaming platforms and is a light-hearted addition to any holiday playlist, offering listeners a musical escape into the magic of the season and insight into an ever-pressing environmental issue.
