Washington, May 26 (ANI): The Rolling Stones, Amy Winehouse, Fall Out Boy and The Killers have joined hands to record a new covers album to raise money for charity.
All the above artists are performing duets with Cuban band Rhythms Del Mundo on the album, called ‘Classics’.
And the proceeds from the album’s sales will fund climate change projects and natural disaster relief around the world.
The album will see The Killers sing The Eagles’ ‘Hotel California’ while The Rolling Stones would be taking on The Drifters’ ‘Under the Boardwalk’, reports Contactmusic.
Winehouse will be performing Sam Cooke’s Cupida and Fall Out Boy and John Mayer are teaming up to cover Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat It on the disc’.
The project, inspired by the tsunami that struck the Indian Ocean in 2005, will go on sale in July (09).
It follows a previous Rhythms Del Mundo album, which featured a collaboration with Coldplay and helped 175 charitable projects around the globe. (ANI)
