War Child rerelease four albums from the 00s
Earlier this year War Child teamed with Virgin to create War Child Records, and their latest action is to re-release four of their classic fundraising albums from the 00s. These records raised funds to help, well, children affected by war, and were notable for their high profile contributors: Muse, Radihead, Bowie, Coldplay among others.
The four albums are now on streaming services, and will be coming out on vinyl. They are: 1 Love (produced with NME), Hope, Help! A Day In The Life and War Child Presents Heroes.
1 Love is built on the principle of modern bands covering old number one hits, while Hope was also full of covers in protest at the Iraq War. A Day In The Life tasked bands with creating their tracks in a single day, producing the fastest album ever, and Heroes saw artists nominate who should cover them.
War Child Records are also working on new campaigns.
