We first reported this news on our twitter news back in March, but now finally more information has become available. Rachel will be featured on Daniel Romano’s upcoming album “Mosey“. Romano is a Canadian musician. Rolling Stone is reporting that Rachel will be featured on the third song of the album, titled “Toulouse“. Daniel Romano recently spoke to Kreative Kontrol (distributed by audioBoom) and revealed Rachel a special guest on his song and is ‘essentially playing a role’. We have added the audio of Romano’s interview our audio archive. Romano’s interview also included a preview of “Toulouse“, which you can find after the jump.
Romano On Working With Rachel: “The song basically called for it [a collaboration]. Once it was written it was a two-character type song and it felt like a character that could go beyond a vocal performance. Something that needed more feeling than just signing. I have known Rachel for a little while, almost 3 years now, and it just seemed like the right fit. She’s an incredible actor. She’s the best […] and she was totally game right off the bat and just killed it and destroyed it. It virtually took 10 minutes, the whole thing.”

Reel Screen is reporting that “Sonic Sea” has joined Discovery Channel’s ‘Discovery Impact’ series line-up. The documentary is narrated by Rachel, as we previously reported, and will air worldwide across Discovery Channel on May 19th.
Michelle Dougherty and Daniel Hinerfeld’s Sonic Sea and Paula Heredia’s Toucan Nation are the two remaining documentary specials set to air across Discovery Channel’s ‘Discovery Impact’ series later this year.
Created in partnership with Natural Resources Defense Council, Imaginary Forces and International Fund for Animal Welfare, Sonic Sea details the continued emergence of ocean noise pollution and the severe consequences it has on marine wildlife.
The film, which is narrated by Rachel McAdams, provides exclusive interviews with marine ecologists, ocean life experts and assorted wildlife activists, including Sting, to highlight how ongoing sound disturbances from shipping vessels and other sources have affected whales, including the phenomenon of cetaceans mass stranding themselves on beaches around the globe.
We missed this news before, but Rachel is part of the cast, as narrator, of the documentary “Sonic Sea“. It’s a documentary about the impact of military and industrial ocean noise on marine life. The documentary is currently touring at festivals and theaters across the country. It screened earlier this year at the Wild & Science Film Festival were it received two awards, including the Jury Award. It will screen this weekend, on March 20, at the Environmental Film Festival in Washington.
Throughout the ocean, whales depend on sound to mate, find food, migrate, and defend against predators. A century ago the seas were silent, but now humans fill them with an unbearable cacophony – the sonic “bombs” of oil prospectors, the whirr of freight ships, the shrieks of military sonar – driving whales to death and disorientation. Sonic Sea, narrated by Rachel McAdams and featuring Sting, tells the story of Ken Balcomb, a former Navy officer who solved the tragic mystery of a mass stranding, and the global network of scientists working to limit our deadly clamor. Directed by Michelle Dougherty and Daniel Hinerfeld.
