It is hoped the track will drive awareness and raise funds for the charity ahead of COP15, the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, December 7-18, 2009, where APE will have a strong presence, representing the concerns and contributions from the world's leading musicians over the issue of Climate Change.

Recorded earlier in the year, "Cupid" has received huge radio support in recent weeks, especially from Steve Wright / Radio 2 and is set to become one of the surprise hits of the year.

And all for a really great cause!

APE & Rhythms Del Mundo

Artists Project Earth (APE) is the vision of a Music Industry Legend: Kenny Young may not be a familiar name to most, but few would not immediately recognise his biggest song, the 1964 classic "Under The Boardwalk".

It's one of the most played and covered songs in pop history, made famous by The Rolling Stones, The Drifters, Sam and Dave, The Beach Boys and many other artists. Young, who wrote the Grammy Award winning song "Ai No Corrida" for Quincy Jones, had spent 30 years penning hits for the biggest stars, including "Crew Love" by Jay-Z and "Spirit of the Forest" performed by Joni Mitchell, Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry and others.

However, the last 10 years has seen Kenny channel his energy towards the battle against Global Climate Change. His mission has been to specifically engage with the artistic community, developing musical projects that raise money and awareness.

Young's song-writing profile has enabled him to pull together the biggest artists, including U-2, Paul McCartney, Sting, Pink Floyd, Elton John, Paul Simon, REM, Peter Gabriel, Queen, Seal and others for ELF's Rainforests conservation projects. His first project, 1991's ‘Earthrise’ was a No.1 hit album in the UK and globally. For APE he produced ‘Rhythms Del Mundo Cuba feat. musicians from the Buena Vista Social Club’ in a collaboration with Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys, Jack Johnson, Sting, U-2, Franz Ferdinand, Kaiser Chiefs, and Radiohead.

The APE charity now extends across the world, with a board of internationally recognised directors and advisors. Kenny himself has been a recipient of the United Nations Global 500 Award for outstanding practical achievements in the protection and improvement of the environment for his work as co-founder of the Earth Love Fund which supported and initiated over 200 community based projects in Brazil, Africa, Asia and Australia.

Amy Winehouse "Cupid" is also available on the album ‘Rhythms Del Mundo Classics’ which features cover versions from many international stars including The Rolling Stones, Amy Winehouse, Keane, Editors, The Zutons, Fall Out Boy and others. All are united in raising money to support APE and its climate change initiatives. Together, ‘Rhythms Del Mundo ‘Classics’ and ‘Cuba’ albums have sold over 1 million albums worldwide, raising millions of dollars for charitable causes. Every year APE makes an award of $100,000 to one or more climate change initiatives from the proceeds of the album sales. To date APE has supported over 175 different climate change tackling causes and natural disaster relief.
