masters of war

"Avril Lavigne has recorded a version of the Bob Dylan classic ’Knocking On Heaven’s Door’ for inclusion on the forthcoming album ’War Child: Hope’, a fundraiser for children of Iraq.

Alongside Lavigne’s contribution are tracks from Travis, Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Moby, The Charlatans, Beverley Knight, Ronan Keating, Basement Jaxx, New Order and Spiritulized.

One particular point of interest on the 17-song album is a track by Yusef Islam, formerly Cat Stevens, who has chosen to break his musical silence for the album, with a reworking of his 1971 hit ’Peace Train’."
