The video for the Justice Collective‘s Christmas single has been unveiled, with Sir Paul McCartney among the stars who have been filmed recording their contribution to the track.
The cover of The Hollies‘ Sixties classic ‘He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother‘ is being released to raise funds for the families of the 96 victims of the Hillsborough disaster, with the aim of covering legal costs as they continue to fight for justice for those who died in 1989.
The single is one of the favourties for this year’s UK Christmas Number One, and also features contributions from the likes of Shane Macgowan, Jon McClure, John Power, Paul Heaton and Holly Johnson.
“I am deeply honoured to be asked to produce this record for the 96,” songwriter Guy Chambers has previously remarked. “If we can help to raise money to support the families’ legal battle so that they finally get their time in court then our job will be done.”
