Musicians Gianni Zammit, Nick Morales and vibefm radio presenter Frank Zammit this morning launched ‘SHout – vote no,’ a song and music video produced in aid of the Spring Hunting Out campaign.
The song, a cover of ‘Shout’ by Tears for Fears, includes the new lyrics ‘spring hunting we can do without, vote no.’ Vocals were performed by Gianni, Nick Morales and Alison Galea of Beangrowers. Multi-percussionist Renzo Spiteri and Benji Cachia of nosnow/noalps provide drums and percussion.
At the launch in Valletta, the artists involved saw the finished product for the first time, to rapturous applause. The video shows the musicians in the recording studio, cut with clips from the SHout campaign trail so far, showing the vast number of people involved in the campaign to stop spring hunting.
Vibefm presenter Frank Zammit interviewed the artists about their involvement, and the process of putting it all together.
Gianni Zammit, musician and radio presenter, said “music is my thing, it’s my way of contributing to this cause that I strongly believe in. We had a lot of fun making it, and we hope it gets shared widely and gets people talking”. Quoting lyrics from the song, he said “I’m talking to all of you, vote no!”
Nick Morales echoed that, saying “I fully support the campaign, and I’m really pleased to have been able to play a part in it. Together we can make this happen, and stop spring hunting.”
Percussionist Renzo Spiteri could not join the event in Valletta, but sent a video message from Gozo, urging everyone to share the video, “I encourage everyone to share this song, so that the message it’s carrying reaches people, because it is an important message. This is an important moment and we all have to shout No together.”
