One Direction, Ed Sheeran, Adele And Sam Smith For Band Aid 30
New version of iconic charity single will feature current stars...
The line-up for the fourth version of Band Aid's Do They Know It's Christmas? has been announced.
Announcing the news today at a press conference in London, Sir Bob said the lyrics of the record-breaking fundraiser had been altered to reflect the "filthy illness" Ebola - which is currently out of control in several African nations.
Coldplay are also set to "phone in" their contribution to the single, because they're across the pond in LA at the moment.
He remained coy on who would be given the honour of singing the first line - which was performed by Paul Young in the 1984 original.
But he did hint that rock legend David Bowie could be in the frame for an appearance on the record.
He said of himself and co-creator Midge Ure: "It is something wonderful that this country reaches out.
"He and I both feel, the Irishman and the Scotsman, should gather the pop crowd together again and do our thing.
"It really doesn't matter if you hate this song or you don't like this song, you have to buy this thing.
"The sleeve will be a unique artwork by Tracey Emin. I really urge everyone. Don't download it, don't look at it on YouTube, it's a couple of quid. It's a great thing to do at Christmas.
"I spoke to Quincy Jones two weeks ago, he will reconvene the American artists."
The track has hastily been installed as the bookies' favourite for the coveted Christmas No 1 slot at 1/4 - above the X Factor winner at 3/1.
