Earlier this month we heard that legendary electronic musician Jean-Michel Jarre was creating a track with renowned whistleblower Edward Snowden.
The duo were brought together by The Guardian last year after Jarre expressed interest in Snowden. The electronic music pioneer said that Snowden reminded him of his mum and her position in the French resistance.
The track features a fast paced, techno beat that is broken in half by a statement on the importance and invasion of privacy. Whilst it’s a shame we don’t get to hear Snowden stretch his vocal cords it sends the message that both Jarre and Snowden are passionate about – being safe in a world that is so connected.
