  • This six-minute environmental call-to-arms finds Young crying foul of corporate greed and pleading to end the world's dependence of fossil fuels. It was spurred by several viewings of the documentary Under The Influence, which is about corporations' influence on government.
  • The song was originally performed at Crazy Horse's UK shows during the summer of 2014 and as part of Young's solo acoustic set at Farm Aid in Raleigh, North Carolina on September 13th.
  • Young laid down four separate versions of the song. The first one released was a fierce live rendition with Crazy Horse recorded in July 2014 during a show in Liverpool, England.
  • The video features a version recorded by Young with a 92-piece orchestra. Disturbing images of pollution are shown on the screens above the classical musicians.
