Keane to release charity single
- 14 September 2007
Keane will release an exclusive single to raise money for War Child, a charity the band became patrons for last year.
The song ‘The Night Sky’ has been produced by Keane and Andy Green for children caught up in conflict around the world.
The release of the single also marks the start of a campaign to raise funds to help future generations affected by war.
Mark Waddington, CEO of the UN Award-winning charity, said: “As patrons of War Child Keane are fantastic supporters of our work. Everyone who downloads Keane’s brilliant new single, The Night Sky, will be helping to protect children in some of the worst war zones in the world.”
The song is written from a child’s perspective about the devastation of war and will be released on October 29 through Island Records. It is also be available for download from October 22 at www.warchildmusic.com.
Lead singer Tom Chaplin said: “One child dies every three minutes because of armed conflict, and all of us can do something about it. War Child do something quite extraordinary and unique in helping to make the lives of future generations better, we hope everyone wants to be a part of that.”
