The fifth studio album from Britain's Starsailor, 2017's All This Life is a sophisticated, organically produced album that nicely balances the expansive lyricism of their early albums with the robust stadium rock they embraced during the mid- and late 2000s. Still centered on the passionate warble of lead singer/songwriter James Walsh, Starsailor are a band caught somewhat out of time. Influenced by a combination of classic rock acts like the Beatles and Pink Floyd, they also draw easy comparisons to contemporary artists like Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, and Coldplay. Bursting onto the scene in 2000, they appeared just after the hype over Brit-pop bands like Oasis and Blur had begun to dissipate. After the release of the highly anticipated Phil Spector collaboration Silence Is Easy, the excitement surrounding the band cooled and Starsailor were left to move forward in a more discreet fashion, and in the process, develop their songwriting skills and studio savvy. Produced by Embrace guitarist Richard McNamara, All This Life is Starsailor's first full-length album of new material since 2009's All the Plans. The extended hiatus seems to have worked for them, as they've come up with what is easily their most mature and balanced production to date. Cuts like the dynamic "Listen to Your Heart," with its orchestral flourishes, and the moody folk-rocker "All This Life," with its echoey piano accents and hooky, effusively delivered chorus, grab you from the start and beg for future spins. There's also a deft level of stylistic growth here on tracks like the Bowie-esque "Take a Little Time" and the steamy '70s soul number "Caught in the Middle." Of course, they still know how to write a yearning ballad, and here we get one of their best in the dusk-toned "Sunday Best." Built around a delicately articulated acoustic guitar pattern and marked by Walsh's sanguine, potent yawp, the evocative heart-wrencher builds slowly to a spiraling, Floyd-worthy ending complete with a female backing chorus and a storm of guitar atmospherics. All that and you're still only halfway through the album. Thankfully, the back half is just as compelling, full of impactful rock anthems like the gospel-inflected "Blood" and the organ-steeped, Rattle and Hum era U2-sounding "Best of Me." Ultimately, Starsailor have been around long enough to earn veteran rocker status and All This Life, with its perfect balance of emotional gravitas and buoyant lyricism, is an album worthy of that status. ~ Matt Collar

Daredevil Records use The Planet app powered by Shopify to neutralize your shipping emissions and removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Daredevil Records has committed to donating the most amount of money possible from your order to offset C02 emissions.  

This includes funding innovative solutions such as direct air capture and mineralization, and a small portion of nature-based carbon removal.

These funds companies such as 44.01, Carbofex, CarbonBuilt, CarbonCure, Charm Industrial, Climeworks, DroneSeed, Grassroots Carbon, Heirloom Carbon, Loam, Noya, Pachama, Planetary, Remora, Running Tide, and Sustaera.

Carbon Removal Process

Carbon removal is the process of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then storing it.

For example, if a truck or a plane that delivers your shipment releases 1 kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, and you are subscribed to the Planet app, then Shopify ensures that 1kg of CO2 is also sucked from the atmosphere and stored away using solutions and technologies in Shopify Sustainability Fund.

There is a fast-growing and evolving sector with many carbon removal technologies in different stages of development. These technologies include nature-based solutions, such as reforestation and soil carbon sequestration and more high-tech solutions, such as direct air capture and mineralization.

How Shipping Emissions Are Calculated

The Planet app combines data from our store with industry data and peer-reviewed models to estimate how much CO2 your shipments release into the environment. Because the Planet app makes sure that CO2 shipping emissions are removed entirely, all values that are used in the data models are rounded up.

Review the following table to learn more about the which data is used to determine shipping emissions:


Primary value

If primary value isn't available


Weight of the shipment

An average shipment weight


Distance traveled according to the tracking data

Straight-line distance between the origin and destination address, multiplied by an uncertainty factor of 1.5

Type of transportation

Truck or plane carbon emissions, determined by speed and distance

Truck emissions

To estimate your emissions, the Planet app uses order tracking data associated with the tracking number assigned to the shipment. If the tracking number isn’t available or the shipping carrier isn’t supported, then the Planet app multiplies the estimated emissions by an uncertainty factor of 1.5. The uncertainty factor helps make sure that all your emissions are removed. If any data is inconsistent or missing, then the Planet app uses a reasonable maximum value instead.

For example, suppose that you ship a package from Boston to New York. The straight-line distance is 305.94 km, but the shortest road route is around 350 km. If tracking data is available, then the Planet app uses the exact distance traveled.

However, if no tracking data is provided, then 305.94 km is used in the base calculation, and the resulting emissions would be multiplied by 1.5. This calculation accounts for variations in the route, such as distances traveled from post offices and distribution centers, and the route taken by the courier to deliver the package to your customer's door.

Considerations for using the Planet app

Review the following considerations for the Carbon Neutral Shipping Planet app:

  • The models and estimates aren’t exact, but the Planet app overestimates your emissions to make sure that they’re entirely removed. 
  • The Planet app removes only carbon (CO2) emissions that account for 95% of the climate impact from burning fossil fuels for transportation. Other emissions such as CH4, N2O, and GHG aren’t removed.
  • Orders that are shipped by sea transportation (we do not ship any orders by sea) don't generate the data required to accurately calculate emissions. Instead, industry-accepted alternative methods are used to calculate emissions.
  • The Planet app currently focuses on addressing emissions from shipping-related transportation.
