REM and Coldplay team up for charity

Stipe and Martin make sweet music together

阅读提示:REM的主唱Michale Stipe与“酷玩”乐队的Chris Martin为卡特里娜飓风的继续筹款的慈善活动联手出单曲。名为“In the sun”的新单曲将同时请来韦恩喷泉(Fountains Of Wayne)的钢琴手Wayne's Adam Schlesinger,制作请来前碎瓜的吉他手James Iha。

ColdplayREM's Michael Stipe has teamed up with Coldplay's Chris Martin for a charity single to continue aid for Hurricane Katrina victims.

This Sunday, following the Super Bowl (February 5) Stipe's duet with Martin on the Joseph Arthur-penned song 'In the Sun' will premiere on US television drama 'Grey's Anatomy'.

The following day it will be available for purchase solely on iTunes, with proceeds going to benefit Mercy Corps .

"The news cycle has moved on and I don't want the public to forget about those who were affected by Katrina or to believe that everything is fine now," Stipe said in a statement yesterday.

He added: "It's a unique place, not only to this country but to the world. I had to do something as a Southerner. I had to do something as a public figure. The one thing I can do is sing, and it's probably the best way to get people to pay attention."

The song features piano by Fountains Of Wayne's Adam Schlesinger and production by Stipe with ex-Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha.

In addition to the duet with Martin, the single will be available in a number of formats on iTunes, including a live version recorded by Coldplay and Stipe at the Texas music festival Austin City Limits earlier this year, as well as a remix by Justin Timberlake and Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am.

'In The Sun' will also be featured in a documentary film of the same name, which airs on US cable network the Sundance Channel later this year. Stipe, Martin and a number of hurricane survivors are interviewed in the picture.
