U.K. charity War Child turns 20 this year and the organization is marking the occasion by releasing an album of tracks that artists have donated to them over the years. The compilation, titled War Child 20: The Best Of, features covers and unique versions of songs recorded by such stars as Paul McCartney, David Bowie, U2, The Clash's Mick Jones and many others.
Among the tracks included on War Child 20 is a rendition of The Beatles' "Come Together" by Smokin' Mojo Filters, a supergroup featuring McCartney, ex-Jam frontman Paul Weller and former Oasis guitarist/songwriter Noel Gallagher. The album also includes the McCartney rarity "Calico Skies"; a remix version of the 2002 Bowie song "Everyone Says Hi"; "Miss Sarajevo" by The Passengers, a collaboration between U2 and late opera legend Luciano Pavarotti; and a cover of The Clash's "Straight to Hell" by U.K. pop star Lily Allen with help from Jones.
War Child also is offering fans a free download of British modern rockers Muse performing a rendition of The Animals' hit "House of the Rising Sun" that blends into their own song "Time Is Running Out." You can get the track after you submit your email address on the organization's website.
