‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ Being Re-Recorded with One Direction, Adele, Sam Smith and More
The track, written in 1984 by Geldof and Ure to raise money for the famine in Ethiopia, is to be re-recorded by some of the biggest-selling British pop acts, from One Direction, Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran to Adele, Emeli Sandé and Ellie Goulding along with Bono and Coldplay.
“We called up some giants, and they said they would come again to the party,” Geldof explained in London on Monday.
The track is set to be recorded Saturday and released a week from Monday, on Nov. 17.
