Coldplay, Black Eyed Peas Contribute To Hearing Loss Compilation

Written by Mike Hohnen on January 23, 2013

The British Tinnitus Association, in partnership with Xfm’s Eddy Temple-Morris, have unveiled the list of artists set to contribute to a forthcoming tinnitus awareness compilation. Coldplay and the Black Eyed Peas are amongst the list of artists, all of whom suffer from, or have a member that suffers from, the hearing condition.

The album will be called I Am The One In Ten, drawing its name from the current statistics of tinnitus suffers in the UK. Temple-Morris commented on the announcement stating, “I’m so happy that Chris Martin has given this his blessing. With Coldplay on board, at last we have a real chance to get through to government now… This record could be a game changer.”

According to the CMU website, it’s not just the bands who suffer from the condition – most of the crew involved, from techs to record label reps, are affected by the ailment.

Seems somewhat ironic given the amount of ear damage both Coldplay and BEP have caused to so many throughout their careers.

I Am The One In Ten aims at inspiring research into tinnitus, as well as attracting investment into that area. For those currently unaware, tinnitus is a disorder of the inner ear, often caused by harsh, loud noises, resulting in a high-pitched ringing. It is also thought to cause mental disorders due to the ceaseless nature of the affliction, which can be so bad it causes insomnia.

You can check out the full list below. The album will be out…once they find a record label to facilite the release.
