Charity cover of Coldplay’s “Fix You” released!

To benefit the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami that shook the lives of so many in March 2011, 49 artists from 18 countries including Simple Plan’s Pierre Bouvier and Sebastien Lefevbre, Evaline, These Kids Wear Crowns and 11 year old Yuto Miyazawa came together in Singapore to rerecord Coldplay’s Fix You.

The arrangement and recording was done in just 36 hours, during the 6th annual Music Matters gathering in Singapore this past May. Coldplay donated the right to use the song, while promotion is being handled by Universal Music Group. This song has now been released worldwide, and all proceeds will go towards the Japanese Red Cross Society and Peace Boat, or you can donate directly here.

More information about the project is available on the Music Matters website, or else you can read about it on the CNNgo news page here: Coldplay cover to raise funds for tsunami relief.

To buy the Music Matters track, search for it on music sites around Asia, including Tencent in China, MOOV in Hong Kong and SingTel in Singapore. An iTunes release will follow shortly; pricing is according to territory.

Thank you to everyone who was involved in the making of this track!
