Bonnie “Prince” Billy has recorded a new version of “Black Captain” for Greenpeace’s Peter Willcox.

Willcox is one of the Arctic 30, named after the number of Greenpeace activists on board a Greenpeace vessel, Arctic Sunrise, who were arrested in September protesting against oil drilling in the Arctic Sea. Willcox was recently released from a jail in St. Petersburg after spending over two months in Russian custody; he is due to stand trial in February. A veteran Greenpeace member, Willcox was also captain of Rainbow Warrior, which was bombed by French agents in 1985.

Black Captain” originally appeared on the 2011 Bonnie “Prince” Billy album, Wolfroy Goes to Town. You can watch the new version of “Black Captain” below.
