“Songs of Disappearance”, which featured, among other things, the Indian Ocean Redtailed Tropicbird, and the Eastern Grey Plover was beaten only in the British by Ed Sheeran and Adele.

The 54-track album was made to coincide with the publication of “The Action Plan for Australian Birds” by Charles Darwin University (CDU), and BirdLife Australia.

Stephen Garnett, a CDU professor and environmental scientist, said that the album was a way to show people that they can lose this.

“It touches the hearts of people.”

Anthony Albrecht, a doctoral candidate at CDU, produced the album. He said that the tracks featured some of the most rare sounds in Australian nature. These tracks were recorded by David Stewart, a nature enthusiast who would often wait for a soundbite that was only a few seconds long.

It was hoped that it would make it to the top 100 albums. He said it had “surpassed all expectations”.

He said, “It really does show very strong support for those issues.”

It shows that this isn’t a joke, and it’s not a gimmick. It’s serious. Albrecht stated that the songs of these birds were literally disappearing.

Simone Slattery (an Australian violinist) composed the title track. She used all 53 species of birds, including songs from the Swift Parrot and Orange-Bellied Parrot.

“The Night Parrot’s call is unique because it has only been recorded so often. “Nor would anyone have heard these bird calls,” Slattery stated in a CDU news release.

Albrecht stated that he hoped other artists would follow his lead and tell stories that connect people with nature.

He said, “People will take more action if they are emotionally connected to the environment or the issues that impact it.” “This project is about the birds, they are the musicians and artists.”

Garnett stated that the number of threatened bird species has increased from 216 to 195 in just ten years. He also said that wildfires in 2019 and 2020 have severely affected species.

He said that global warming has also made it harder for those who need to survive on cooler days.

Albrecht stated, “I find this deeply concerning.” “It is vital that we all take collective responsibility for conserving birds.”

BirdLife Australia will receive proceeds from the sale of the album. This is one of Australia’s largest bird conservation organizations.
