Damon Albarn, Alex Kapranos, Flea And Nick Zinner To Release Track For Charity

Written by Sarah Bella on July 6, 2013

Now, this is one supergroup we can’t wait to hear from. Blur‘s Damon Albarn, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos and Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner have gotten together to contribute to a track, and it’s all in the name of charity, with proceeds going to Oxfam’s Syria Crisis Appeal.

The four will all feature on the song from Fresh Touch, a musical project by Richard Russell, XL records head honcho, and producer Rodaidh McDonald. It’s 1 of 10 exclusive 12″ vinyl releases that will be sold at London’s Independent Label Market next weekend, with other artists donating tracks, including Charli XCX, Beth Orton and Editors.

Each vinyl is limited to 50 copies and will be hand-numbered, selling for £10 each, with the money raised providing assistance to people affected by the conflict in Syria. And if you can’t find the time to drop by London next weekend, head to eBay: the Independent Label Market will also be auctioning off a complete set of the 10 records.
