War Child: Heroes

From £21.99

Cat No: WARCHILD6LP

War Child Presents Heroes is the ultimate covers album - an unprecedented coming together of music’s greatest ever legends
and with their favourite artists of the time to support children whose lives have been torn apart by war. The album concept sees
the biggest heroes in music history select a personal favourite track from their own back catalogue and nominate an act from
the next generation to create a modern reworking of that classic song.

Legends supporting the album include David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, The Kinks, Roxy Music, Joy Division, The Clash, The
Ramones, Blondie and Iggy Pop. And the artists taking on those covers includes Scissor Sisters, Elbow, Beck, The Kooks, Rufus
Wainwright, Estelle, Hot Chip, The Hold Steady and Lily Allen.

Some legends selected one of their all-time classic standards like Stevie Wonder’s ‘Superstition’, covered by Estelle, and
Blondie’s ‘Call Me’, covered by Franz Ferdinand. Others selected favourite tracks that deserve to be rediscovered as with Scissor
Sister’s exhilarating version of Roxy Music’s ‘Do The Strand’ (not originally released as a single in the UK) and Lily Allen’s stunning
take on The Clash’s ‘Straight To Hell’ featuring backing vocals and guitar from Mick Jones (originally the B-side of ‘Should I Stay,
Or Should I Go’).

The album was recorded over six months in studios in London, Manchester, Paris, Berlin, New York and Los Angeles. It was
mastered at Abbey Road studios in London.

Estelle got to record her track in the original studio where Stevie Wonder recorded Supersititon and used the exact same
keyboards whilst The Kooks recorded their version of Victoria in The Kinks’ original studios Konk. TV On The Radio’s version of
Heroes features Karen O from YYYs on backing vocals.

War Child Presents Heroes is part of a series of four re-releases by War Child Records making the amazing music artists have
donated to the charity available on DSPs and vinyl for the first time. All proceeds from these releases will directly fund War
Child’s life saving work with children affected by conflict.
