Gordi has dropped a new track, 'The Cost'

Aussie Gordi has shared a brand new track.

Titled 'The Cost', all royalties from the song will go to the New South Wales Rural Fire Service.

In a statement alongside the track, she explains: "Australia is on fire.

“People are losing their loved ones, their homes and their communities. There have been irreparable losses to our wildlife and national parks. As in all times of tragedy, people are giving everything they can. The efforts of the Rural Fire Service, Red Cross and Wildlife Rescue are nothing short of heroic.

“Yet we have a dormant political system that is watching our country dry up. These fires have fed on years of drought, on dry lifeless scrub. It is simply not an issue to debate - our country is heating from the climate crisis and now people are dying because of it. We cannot survive the inaction. We need our leaders to lead.

”I come from a small farming community that is drought-stricken – Canowindra in rural New South Wales.

“As a kid I remember my Dad taking the RFS truck that lives in our shed to neighbouring properties to help put out fires. The NSW Rural Fire Service is made up of volunteers and local farmers and right now they need all the assistance we can give them. In conjunction with my record labels Jagjaguwar and Liberation, 100% of all royalties from this song will go to the RFS. It is called “The Cost”."

Gordi released her debut album, 'Reservoir', back in 2017. She'll be 'back' with a new one 'later this year'.

If you wish to donate to the NSW Rural Fire Service, you can do so here.
