All proceeds from the record will go to help those who were affected by the Grenfell Tower fire in west London last week, distributed via The London Community Foundation.

The track was recorded just half a mile from the site of the disaster at Sarm Studios, over a three day period from Saturday 17 June. 

The video for the track will premiere on Wednesday evening on ITV just before ‘Coronation Street’ at 7.30pm.
