Michael Stipe has released his first official single since R.E.M. called it quits in 2011.

“Your Capricious Soul” is available for download for 77 cents exclusively through Stipe’s website. Proceeds from the song will directly benefit Extention Rebellion, a climate action organization.

In a statement, Stipe said, “I took a long break from music, and I wanted to jump back in. I love ‘Your Capricious Soul’ – it’s my first solo work. I want to add my voice to this exciting shift in consciousness.”

“Extinction Rebellion gave me the incentive to push the release and not wait. Our relationship to the environment has been a lifelong concern, and I now feel hopeful—optimistic, even,” Stipe continued. “I believe we can bring the kind of change needed to improve our beautiful planet earth, our standing and our place on it.”

The song was released with a music video directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson. Watch below.
