<p>Says Fraser "This has been completed in the few weeks since I became aware of the campaign and felt I had to make a commitment myself. I literally took a few quotes from the Avaaz mailing, juggled them around, sang them to the first notes I played on bass, and started recording".</p>
<p/>
<p>The song rekindles memories of the immediacy of his writing from FREE, even early Rolling Stones.</p>
<p/>
<p>The song is proving to have traction with rock stations, whereas his recent material has had a more mellow, mature R&B reggae feel to it.</p>
<p/>
<p>The TckTckTck campaign has energized people worldwide, to demonstrate they do indeed care about "catastrophic climate change" and has drawn other celebrities like <person>Hugh Jackman</person> to raise their voices along with so-called Avaaz'flash-mobs' that staged demonstrations worldwide at <chron>12:18 PM</chron> <chron>Sept. 21st</chron>.</p>
<p/>
<p>Meanwhile, Fraser is finalizing his upcoming CD "On Assignment" scheduled for release on Mctrax International along with the long-awaited "Alive" concert DVD/documentary.</p>
<p/>
<p><person>Andy Fraser</person> reflects, "The magnitude of this climate threat, greenhouse gases, pollution, carbon emissions, endangering our planet, means we must make a global commitment and come together with a common purpose".</p>
