War Child announce the full list of artists and songs that feature on their new album "Heroes", released on Parlophone on February 16th.
The album concept is that the biggest legends in music history select one of their personal favourite songs from their own songwriting canon, and nominate a music hero from the next generation to create a modern reworking of that classic song. The album is in support of the real heroes - children who live with the brutal affects of war.
The tracklist in full:

1. Beck (Bob Dylan: Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat)
2. Scissor Sisters (Roxy Music: Do The Strand)

3. Lily Allen ft. Mick Jones (The Clash: Straight To Hell)

4. Duffy (Paul McCartney: Live And Let Die)

5. Elbow (U2: Running To Stand Still)

6. TV On The Radio (David Bowie: Heroes)

7. Hot Chip (Joy Division: Transmission)

8. The Kooks (The Kinks: Victoria)

9. Estelle (Stevie Wonder: Superstition)

10. Rufus Wainwright (Brian Wilson: Wonderful/ Song For Children)

11. Peaches (Iggy Pop: Search And Destroy)

12. The Hold Steady (Bruce Springsteen: Atlantic City)

13. The Like (Elvis Costello: You Belong To Me)

14. Yeah Yeah Yeahs (The Ramones: Sheena Is A Punk Rocker)

15. Franz Ferdinand (Blondie: Call Me)

Guy Garvey of Elbow commented: "War Child do exactly what it says on the tin. These kids shouldn't be in such circumstances in the first place, but they are, so thank god someone's doing something about it."

Sir Paul McCartney said: "I have been supporting War Child since 1995. Their work with children in war zones saves lives and their work with those who take decisions that help them to do something about it saves even more lives. The breadth of talent on this project is amazing; it's great that so many people gave their time, energy and support to this initiative. I urge everyone to support War Child."

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.

Looks like a relatively AWESOME CD....

Here is a song you might be more familiar with of the band

I have to say this is one of my favorite songs out there.
Sorry my information is so delayed, but I just was informed of this and I thought it was worth sharing..........
