Band Aid 30 Lineup Announced
Details about the Band Aid 30 single have emerged. The single will be recorded and finished within 2 days, ready for release on the 17th November.

Bob Geldof's newest confirmed recruits include Foals, Elbow, Jessie Ware, Bastille, Emeli Sande, Paloma Faith, Ellie Goulding, Sam Smith, One Direction, Ed Sheeran and of course, Bono and Chris Martin. David Bowie and Adele are rumoured to be involved, with Bowie opening the track, but this is not yet confirmed.

Geldof has been reported to have said, "it really doesn't matter if you hate this song or you don't like this song, you have to buy this thing". The Band Aid 30 single will raise money to go towards the Ebola crisis, this will be reflected in new lyrics.

Slated to produce the record is Paul Epworth, with Tracey Emin providing the cover art for the physical copy which will be available a couple of weeks after the download release date.

Don't know about you, but we know we'll still prefer the original.
