Stars record Hillsborough charity track

Friday October 26, 2012

Robbie Williams is just one of the musicians to feature on a track to raise money for Hillsborough families.

Going head to head with the X Factor for the Christmas number one spot, Beverley Knight, Mel C, Rebecca Ferguson, Paloma Faith, The Zutons singer Dave McCabe, Cast's John Power, The Beautiful South's Paul HeatonOasis drummer Chris Sharrock and The Clash's Mick Jones are joining together to perform a version of He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother.

Robbie's former songwriting partner Guy Chambers is set to produce the track, and has even higher hopes for the all-star line-up.

He said: "I'm very happy with the artists we have already, but obviously I know Sir Paul McCartney was mentioned so if he did join our happy little band of talent then that would be amazing."

Liverpool Walton MP Steve Rotheram revealed the details of the new single in central London alongside Chambers and Liverpool FC football star Kenny Dalglish, which will be released on December 17.
