Finally, it is here! The full-length song “Beds are Burning” with accompanying music video was unveiled at 3pm local time in Paris, France. Kofi Annan was joined by Mélanie Laurent, a good friend of Marion. She herself seems to have been absent from the event, so here a quote from Mélanie:
I’m supporting Kofi Annan’s initiative and hope this song will be heard by as many people as possible in the world before Copenhagen. This campaign will help secure a better future for our planet and upcoming generations. The time has come.

Be sure to visit Time for Climate Justice org to watch the full music video (also in HD) and to download the song. Remember, by downloading the song you’re signing the petition that will be handed to the world’s political leaders on December 7, 2009 in Copenhagen. The song is also available on iTunes.
Marion Cotillard’s voice can clearly be heard at around 1:31. There’s not much more footage of her in the video than we’ve already seen in the trailer, but the quality of these final captures are much better. Enjoy!
