Shane McGowan and partner Victoria Clarke have released a charity version of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins' 1956 hit 'I Put A Spell On You'.
The single, which features vocals from Nick Cave, Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie, the Sex Pistols' Glen Matlock, The Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde, and with guitar courtesy of The Clash’s Mick Jones and Johnny Depp, is in aid of Haitian earthquake victims, with all proceeds going to the charity Concern.
It got its world radio premiere last night on Today FM's The Last Word, when Matt Cooper was joined by HP's Stuart Clark, and will be available for download only from March 8.
Shane is also set to play the Athlone Music Festival this summer. This new event, which takes place on July 31 and August 1, will see acts like Sharon Shannon, Mundy, The Undertones and Hazel O'Connor head to the Athlone Rugby Ground in Westmeath for the two day festival. Tickets cost e50.
