TckTckTck is Beds are Burning videoa global alliance of civil society organizations, trade unions, faith groups and people—all calling for an fair, ambitious, and binding climate change agreement. The campaign song is a re-mix of the mega-hit "Beds are Burning" re-written by Midnight Oil themselves to reflect the greatest humanitarian crisis facing humankind today - climate change. 

The song has been supported by over 60 international music stars and celebrities including Duran Duran, Mark Ronson, Jamie Cullum, Melanie Laurent, Marion Cotillard, Milla Jovovich, Fergie, Lily Allen, Manu Katche, Bob Geldof, Youssou N’Dour, Yannick Noah and many more.

The song was driven by one of the co-founders of the TckTckTck campaign, former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan's new organization, the Global Humanitarian Forum, and their partners global advertising giant Havas Worldwide and their film production arm, The:Hours.

Listen to the song.
