The “Heroes” album is a unique collaboration of music’s biggest acts, with all-time legends nominating both the classic track and modern artist to record an exclusive cover version.
Since the album was announced recently a list of huge names have come forward with offers to participate in the record. This new release date will allow War Child to add further to their historic roll call of musical legends and modern greats. The initial list of participants included such luminaries as Paul McCartney, Duffy, Brian Wilson, Rufus Wainwrigh, Joy Division and Hot Chip.
War Child say: “We have been over-whelmed and amazed by the response to the project. The wealth of talent who have contacted us wishing to support the charity and contribute to the album is humbling and we are delighted to have been able to change our deadlines to accommodate some of them. It was impossible to say no.”
War Child would like to thank everyone for their support and look forward to releasing a fantastic record in 2009.
