Madonna has stepped up and released a new song written for the upcoming Live Earth concerts.
Her new single “Hey, You” is folksy, sweet sentimental — in the words of fansites — and it’s also free. Through its MSN site, Microsoft is making the first million downloads free to the public, as they will see what the July 7, 2007 series of concerts is all about. Inspired by Al Gore’s environmental movement, producer Kevin Wall is organizing concerts on that date on seven continents, including Antarctica. Madonna will perform at the Wembley Stadium Live Earth concert in London.
Warner Bros. Records will be releasing a live CD/DVD of the event.
