Today, Portugal. The Man released a limited edition single “Endangered Song” to raise awareness of the rapidly declining species of Sumatran Tigers in the world. This might come off as an extremely random move, but the idea behind the project is actually really cool. Using quite a bit of creativity, Portugal. The Man is harnessing the power of their amazing musical talents to help a species that quite frankly will never be able to enjoy their music because 1. Sumatran tigers are dwindling fast and 2. Tigers cannot comprehend their music. But hey, it’s the thought that counts and Portugal. The Man are some of the raddest dudes in the music industry today. Let’s just hope that “Endangered Song” gets reproduced and in turn, Sumatran tigers stick around. Here’s what they had to say:

“There are less than 400 Sumatran Tigers in existence. Unfortunately most of the world is unaware of this frightening fact. Without action, the species will completely disappear. To spread the message of the Tiger’s vulnerability, we’ve created a song that will also go extinct unless it’s reproduced. These custom lathe-cut records are made from polycarbonate plastic, which means it will degrade after a certain amount of plays, causing the song to eventually disappear and go extinct. The Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute, in collaboration with us, have made only 400 records of this unreleased song. There are no other copies in existence. Tigers are dwindling every year. Social influence and conservation action could actually help save a species. Visitwww.endangeredsong.si.edu to find out more.”
