Alternative Haiti Single: I Put A Spell On You

You’d be hard pushed to find someone with ears that actually like’s Simon Cowell’s Haiti single ‘Everybody Hurts’ but because it’s for a very worthy cause all is forgiven. Well, almost.

Proving that charity singles don’t have to always be rancid ear-bleeding smaltzy toons Pogues legend Shane MacGowan has asked a few of his showbiz pals to help record the alternative Haiti charity single and jeez, he hasn’t let us down. Shane MacGowan & Friends' cover of Screamin' Jay Hawkins classic 'I Put A Spell On You' features none other than Johnny Depp, Bobby Gillespie (Primal Scream), Nick Cave, Chrissie Hynde (Pretenders), Paloma Faith, Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols) and Mick Jones (The Clash).

Not only does it have a stellar cast, all proceeds go to Concern – a charity which helps the world’s poorest countries including Haiti. Oh, and it’s bleeding brilliant (and not in the ear bleeding way like SyCo's offering.) Download the track from iTunes now and watch the vid below...
