Superchunk share collaboration with Fucked Up’s Damian Abraham

‘Our Work Is Done’ comes on a new charity 7” alongside a Klaus Nomi cover.

Since releasing their comeback album ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ back in February, Superchunk have released a handful of charity 7” singles.

So far, they’ve released singles benefitting Planned Parenthood South Atlantic and the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the latest 7” will see proceeds going to Bill McKibben’s climate-change advocacy non-profit

The new 7” comprises ‘Our Work Is Done’, a new original song featuring vocals from Damian Abraham of Fucked Up and a cover of Klaus Nomi song ‘Total Eclipse’.

Speaking about the new single, the band’s Mac McCaughan says: “‘Our Work Is Done’ is an imaginary conversation between the last two living residents of a hot and dying planet. Damian Abraham from the band Fucked Up lends his gravitas to the situation. ‘Total Eclipse’ is a song about a different kind of holocaust, originally performed by Klaus Nomi. When I saw the film Urgh! A Music War, the Nomi clip blew my mind. I didn’t know what to make of him or the performance. Truly a unique artist trying to convey the urgency of several emergencies at once.

“The news these days is overwhelming, and sometimes it’s hard to focus on the larger issues we are all collectively facing. Climate change is transforming the world in dangerous ways and requires immediate action. The proceeds from the single will go to Bill McKibben’s, and we stand by them as they build the global grassroots climate movement that can hold our leaders accountable to the realities of science and the principles of justice.”

The 7” is available to buy via Merge Records on limited vinyl here, or to listen to via Spotify below.
