Mick Jagger Announces NFT of “Eazy Sleazy”
Hot on the heels of the release of his collaboration with Dave Grohl on the pandemic hit of the summer, “Eazy Sleazy” Mick Jagger has announced the creation of a non-fungible token–or NFT–of the tune to raise money for charity.
The Rolling Stones frontman collaborated with 3D artist Oliver Latta, aka Extraweg, to create the NFT, which is a 30-second audio-visual piece set to a loop of “Eazy Sleazy” that fans can now own as a keepsake to benefit a number of charieties.
According to a press statement, the NFT “evokes a surreal essence of breaking through the barriers of the human mind and pushing forward on the brink of social collapse to provide a much needed moment of artistic relief as the world slowly transitions out of lockdown.”
The NFT will go up for bid for 24 hours at NiftyGateway.com at 1 p.m. ET today. All proceeds raised will benefit the Music Venue Trust, a U.K.-based charity that helps grassroots music venues; Backup, which provides financial support to ill or injured members of the entertainment technology industry or to their families; and National Independent Venue Association, or NIVA, which aids independent music venues affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Part of the proceeds also will be donated to environmental causes.
