Step back, Babs and Beiber: In a new Haiti tribute single, Celtic rock icon (and dental legend) Shane McGowan is joined by friends like Johnny Depp, the Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde, Nick Cave, Paloma Faith, Clash guitarist Mick Jones, the Sex Pistols’ Glen Matlock, Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie, and more an all-star cover of Screamin’ Jay Hawkin’s 1956 blues torcher “I Put a Spell on You”
Pre-order the single, profits of which go directly to Concern Worldwide’s work in Haiti, here. And tell us: as uncharitable as it may be to judge, well, efforts devoted to charity, where would you place McGowan and co.’s contribution in the recent music-for-Haiti outpouring (e.g.“We Are the World,” “Everybody Hurts,” Linkin Park’s “Not Alone”)?
