Queen guitarist Brian May and West End star Kerry Ellis collaborate once again on a cover of wildlife activist Virginia McKenna's song 'Nothing Really Has Changed'. They performed the track during their 'Acoustic By Candlelight' tour.
The video features the duo on a candle-lit stage with Brian on guitar and Kerry on vocals at the Montreux Jazz Festival. Brian opens the track by explaining that he wants to remind people that 'we too have wild animals all around us which, perhaps, need a little respect' before presenting a video of badgers and foxes playing which is projected onto a screen behind them. The track is a mournful, minor-infused tune which Kerry portrays with intense emotion behind her resonant voice.
The song has been unveiled as part of their campaign against the proposed badger culling which the government have put in place to reduce the spread of bovine tuberculosis in cattle, as many badgers carry the deadly disease. However, this controlled killing of the creatures naturally means that thousands of uninfected badgers are also being slaughtered which is something that animal rights activists are in uproar about. Brian May is part of a campaign that insists that vaccinations should be given to prevent the spread of TB instead. 'The cull is a disaster as was predicted; it was never on the cards that culling could eradicate bTB - only vaccination can do that', he has stated.
