The RSPB is calling on the public to download, stream and share the single and help get birdsong into the charts for the first time, spreading the word that people across the UK are passionate about nature’s recovery.
The track is designed to reconnect the nation with nature, helping people find a moment to relax and promote a feeling of tranquillity, as birdsong has been proven to aid mental health and promote feelings of wellbeing.
Directed by Sam Lee, award-winning singer and musician, and produced by Bill Barclay, musical Director at the Globe Theatre; the single uses entirely new sound recordings from RSPB nature reserves around the UK.
The single is available on all major platforms and it is hoped will reach a crescendo in the charts for International Dawn Chorus Day on 5 May. More information and access to the download can be found at www.rspb.org.uk/letnaturesing

“With 40 million fewer birds compared to 50 years ago we are getting closer and closer to a spring without birdsong. I support this campaign and urge people to download the RSPB's single here: https://www.rspb.org.uk/get-involved/campaigning/let-nature-sing/ to get nature into the Top 40 and #LetNatureSing!”
