Ipswich drumming star Nandi Bushell is set to release a single with Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello. 

The music video for the new song, called The Children Will Rise Up, will feature movie star and musician Jack Black along with climate activist Greta Thunberg. 

The song, which is an anthem against climate change and environmental destruction, was co-written with Tom Morello's son, Roman Morello.

Nandi rose to prominence in 2018 when she appeared in the John Lewis Christmas advert.
