Rolling Stones members Mick Jagger and Ronnie Wood are among the star performers who contributed to a new charity single titled ““Save the Children (Look Into Your Heart).” The legendary British rockers donated their time in an effort to raise funds for the survivors of the devastating earthquake, which rocked Nepal last month.
According to an article posted May 5 at U.K.’s Daily Express, the pair of Rock and Roll Hall of Famers teamed on the project with U.K. soul singer Beverly Knight and Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason, among others. Jagger provided backing harmony behind Knight’s lead vocals while Wood contributed guitar to the Mason produced track.
“Save the Children” was written by songwriter Matt Clifford and recorded at Abbey Road studios. The track also features contributions from the 100-voice Save the Children choir.
The song was released yesterday digitally on iTunes and can be purchased here. All proceeds benefit the survivors of the April 25 tragedy that has claimed more than 7,500 lives and injured more than 14,500 via Save the Children’s Nepal earthquake initiative.
Save the Children is an international non-governmental organization that promotes children’s rights, provides relief and helps support children in developing countries. For more information, click here.
Wood and Jagger took a break from preparations for their upcoming Zip Code Tour to record the single. Commenting on the project, Wood said, “I am delighted that this recording made by us for Save The Children will help with the Nepal Appeal.”
The pair will be back with The Stones when they launch the North American leg of their AEG Live produced Zip Code Tour in San Diego on May 24 at Petco Park. Tickets for all U.S. dates can be purchased at AXS. Tickets for their Canadian headline performance at Quebec City Summer Festival (FEQ) on July 15 can be purchased here.
