As part of a charity album of John Lennon songs to help the suffering African population of Darfur, to be released on May 25, Green Day will release Working Class Hero tomorrow (May 1st) as a download. The track will be available to purchase through iTunes and will feature some of Lennon’s original vocals. .
The album will include Christine Aguilera, Aerosmith, Corinne Bailey Rae, U2, Black Eyed Peas, Snow Patrol and Jack Johnson. The project, titled 'Instant Karma: The Campaign To Save Darfur', will feature REM’s version of #9 Dream.
Full details of the tracklisting will be revealed soon. It is, however, understood that Yoko Ono, Lennon's widow, has kindly donated all music publishing royalties to the campaign.
