A Most Awesome Cover Album

What do you get when you have Sir Paul McCartney asking his musical peers to select one of their songs and choose a young artist to perform it, with proceeds going to benefit children affected by war? You get War Child Presents Heroes!    This album has Beck covering Bob Dylan, The Kooks coverning the Kinks, TV on the Radio doing David Bowie's Heroes , The Hold Steady with their version of Bruce Springsteen's Atlantic City and Duffy with an awesome version of Sir Paul's Live and Let Die. War Child has a total of 16 tracks on it and will be available on Feb 24. If you can't wait, the entire album can be streamed on their their My Space page.
