Superchunk collaborate with Fucked Up's Damian Abraham on new single 'Our Work Is Done'

After releasing their comeback album ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ earlier in the year, Superchunk have now returned to deliver a special 7" charity single, set to benefit Bill McKibben’s climate-change advocacy non-profit 350.org.

The new track 'Our Work Is Done' features guest vocals from Fucked Up frontman Damian Abraham, and the release will also feature a cover of the Klaus Nomi song ‘Total Eclipse’ as a b-side.

Speaking about the new collaboration, the band’s Mac McCaughan said, “‘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 350.org, 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 new 7" is available now via Merge Records, and you can check out both new singles in the player below.
