Yesterday we were treated to a brand new song by one of our favourite artists of 2012 and a tip for 2013, Vuvuvultures. That in itself would be reason enough to get excited (and we did) but the track, “Stay Still” was filmed and released online for the Mark Thomas Taylor Menswear ”IN THIS TOGETHER” campaign which is associated with MTV Staying Alive Foundation which is helping with the global fight against HIV and AIDS.
The Vuvuvultures gang are brand ambassadors for the campaign and you’ll notice they are sporting some rather fetching t-shirts in the video, which you can buy here, as part of that role.
The track itself is as brilliant and as energetic as we have come to expect from Vuvuvultures but now with added pop bounce in the chorus. Obviously we love it and with news of more new tracks and videos on the way, we’re just getting more excited for an album in 2013.
There are more details on the campaign and a link to where you can lend your support after the video.
About the In This Together Campaign

UK designer Mark Thomas Taylor (MTT) has partnered with the MTV Staying Alive Foundation in creating the new fashion line “In This Together” to help ignite a wave of awareness about the HIV/AIDS pandemic. All money raised will go towards the Foundation’s work in empowering young people engaged in fighting the stigma, spread and threat of the virus through inspiring grantee projects around the world.
“In This Together” will be supported by London-based bands and artists Seye, The Special Ks and Vuvuvultures, who are also Mark Thomas Taylor’s brand ambassadors, and will be featured in “unplugged-style” videos to feature the exclusive product range.

“I’m so excited about this collaboration with SAF and MTV!” said Mark Thomas Taylor. “The fight against HIV and AIDS is so important and I couldn’t think of a better way to show my support than to team up with these guys on our capsule collection.”
