“According to NME.com, the album sleeve is printed on recycled paper, and the CDs are carbon neutral. What’s more, “the estimated CO2 produced from its manufacture, shipping and packaging being offset by helping build renewable energy projects with Nativeenergy.com/sony

Farrell has been a strong supporter of the environment. At this years SXSW Music Festival, he held a fireside chat for several hundred fans with the topic, “How do we save the world?” Who can forget this memorable quote from the singer?

“But there were a few notable, including one from a woman who asked, ‘What about more funding for sources of alternative fuel.’ Ferrell hit back with, ‘Like Solar? Oh, what does that do? Solar? Yes, because we inherited the spirit of the sun! When we’re unified, we are powerful. And when we have the power of the sun, we are powerful, alright?’”

Awesome. Ultra Payloaded hits May 29th.
