Greta Thunberg has been in the news quite a bit for her climate change activism over the last few months, but now she's hitting the headlines for a slightly different reason.

The Swedish teenager will feature on the new album by Electric Picnic headliners The 1975.

Thunberg will read an essay on climate change over an ambient backing track, which will act as the opening track for 'Notes on a Conditional Form'.

All three of the band's previous albums have opened with an ambient track titled 'The 1975', and the Thunberg-featured track shares the title, too.

"We are right now in the beginning of a climate and ecological crisis. And we need to call it what it is: an emergency," Thunberg says in the essay.

"Today we use about 100 million barrels of oil every single day. There are no politics to change that. There are no rules to keep that oil in the ground, so we can no longer save the world by playing by the rules, because the rules have to be changed, everything needs to change, and it has to start today."
