Badly Drawn Boy - 'Come On Eileen' Taken from the 'One Love - War Child' album

Badly Drawn Boy, aka Damon Gough, has recorded a version of the classic Dexy's Midnight Runners 80's anthem 'Come On Eileen'.

The track was recorded with Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra specifically for the 1Love Warchild charity album released on Monday 14 Oct.

'Come On Eileen' was originally released in 1982 and like all the songs chosen for the Warchild album, it went straight to number one.

For an average artist it would have been impossible to add anything to such a timeless track, but Badly Drawn Boy has produced an original, beautiful and very very funny cover which is wihtout a doubt highlight of this charity album.

Other artists that feature on the album include The Prodigy, Oasis, Feeder and even The Sugababes covering Adamski's 'Killer'.

The 1Love album is a worthy successor to the 1995 War Child ‘HELP’ album which raised over 1.25 million pounds for the charity.

For the last ten years War Child have been actively providing aid to children whose lives have been devastated by war. In Bosnia, Africa, Afghanistan and the Middle East, War Child has helped some 5 million people rebuild their lives.

Badly Drawn Boy's next single is also released on the same day. 'You Were Right' is the first track to be taken from the forthcoming album 'Have You Fed The Fish?' but will be deleted after one day of release.

'You Were Right' was released on the 14th October.
'1Love' was released on the 14th October.
