Earlier this month, we told you about the second stellar compilation project of the new year (Dark Was the Night being number one). Entitled War Child: Heroes, the 16-track benefit album seeks to raise proceed for victims of war by inundating listeners with so many awesome covers that you, me, and everyone else would be crazy not to listen to, let alone buy them.
Ahead of next week’s release date, the fine folks at War Child have decided to offer a full stream of the album. So if Lily Allen’s rendition of “Straight to Hell”, or The Hold Steady’s cover of “Atlantic City” didn’t tickle your fancy enough to have already shelled out $13.99 on the pre-sale, perhaps Hot Chip’s take on Joy Division’s “Transmission” or Estelle’s stab at “Superstitious” will.
Either way, I think I’ve found my entertainment for today…
