"War Child’s amazing new album “Heroes” will be released on 5th March 2009. The album concept is that the biggest legends in music history select their personal favourite song from their own songwriting canon, and nominate an artist from the next generation to create a modern reworking of that classic song. Many acts that were keen to join the project have now completed and delivered their tracks, and the album has been mastered at the legendary Abbey Road studios.
The full tracklisting will be announced later this month, but includes contributions from Scissor Sisters, Duffy, Elbow, Hot Chip, Beck, Rufus Wainwright and The Kooks. U2 and The Clash join a stellar cast of legends including Sir Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, The Kinks and Joy Division.
EMI has made a substantial upfront payment to War Child, and will release the album on its Parlophone label. Parlophone are donating all their profits to War Child’s work to protect the most marginalised children in war zones, who would otherwise be overlooked: street children, child soldiers and children in prison.
