Turkish sources are circulating details of a new song that Tarkan had mentioned he was in the process of writing after teaming up with a Turkish nature conservation society.

In a report about Turkish artists busy with "good works", a news source claims that the top Turkish pop artist has penned a new song called "Uyan" (Wake Up) for the wildlife association.

As part of his commitments to the Doğa Derneği, which he had signed up with earlier this year, Tarkan had opened an office for the society in the southern part of Turkey in May.

Reportedly Tarkan wrote the song on returning to Istanbul, after giving a press conference to raise awareness of the devastating effects the building of a dam in that region would create.
