Björk has previously dedicated the song to Russian punk band Pussy Riot, the members of which were imprisoned for anti-government protest, as well as to Kosovo, Greenland and Tibet.
A number of musicians have dedicated songs to Trayvon or spoken out following the teenager’s death, including Beyoncé, Stevie Wonder and Bruce Springsteen, digitalspy.co.uk reports.
The fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman in Florida in February 2012 has caused heated debates and mass protests. Last week, the jury ruled Zimmerman not guilty.
