War Child: Hope

War Child: Hope



War Child: Hope finds an all-star cast of artists coming together to honor and assist child victims of the war in Iraq. David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Billy Bragg, and Spiritualized are just a few who contribute original tracks to this stunning collection, while Beth Orton, New Order, the Charlatans UK, and Avril Lavigne offer their own renditions of wartime favorites. Yusuf Islam lends his hand to War Child: Hope as well by reworking the Cat Stevens classic "Peace Train." This particular album, which is a follow-up to the 1995 album Help: A Charity Project for the Children of Bosnia, is perfect for any Brit-pop fan.
