Watch: MacGowan, Depp, Cave, & Gillespie cover “I Put a Spell on You”

Of all the pro-Haiti benefit collaborations that have surfaced over the last two months, the Shane MacGowan-led, Johnny Depp, Nick Cave, Bobby Gillespie, Glen Matlock, Chrissie Hynde, Paloma Faith, and Eliza Doolittle-featuring cover of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins 1956 hit “I Put a Spell On You” is easily the most intriguing. Unlike “We Are the World 25”, the lineup actually kicks ass — where else are you going to find a movie star jamming out with a screaming Pogues frontman? And unlike Simon Cowell’s “Everybody Hurts”, the song selection was not the most obvious of choices.

You can check out the end result, in video form below. The mp3 form of the song will be available beginning March 8th via 7digital. All proceeds go to Concern, a charity which has provided assistance to some of the poorest countries in the world including Haiti.
