Jesse Paris Smith, Patti Smith, Thom Yorke, Flea and Tony Shanahan perform during Pathway to Paris at Le Trianon on Dec. 4, 2015 in Paris. 

If you weren't one of the lucky people at the two-night Pathway to Paris Live concert in December last year, the climate change awareness initiative has now released a live album from the event, which featured Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Patti Smith, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea and more.

Founded by organizers Jesse Paris Smith and Rebecca Foon, Pathway to Paris served to unite musicians, activists and politicians from around the world to speak and perform in a series of live concert events meant to inspire action and foster dialogue about climate change.

The album features 11 songs and six speeches chosen from two evenings at Le Trianon in Paris on Dec. 4 and 5, 2015, and includes a range of musicians.

In a striking introduction, writer and activist Bill McKibben tells the audience, “As well as the scientists have done their job, that’s how badly the politicians have done theirs,” highlighting the end goal of Pathway to Paris to raise consciousness about the urgency of climate action.

Now, the initiative’s live album is out and available for purchase. Check it out at
