Ozzy Osbourne has lent his voice to a new charity single that also features PINK FLOYD drummer Nick Mason, SLADE frontman Noddy Holder and DURAN DURAN guitarist Andy Taylor
The song, called “This Christmas Time” can be heard below.
The track was released in an attempt to raise money for a new online global project providing information to people living with cancer, led by The Cancer Awareness Trust.
“It’s an honour and a delight to be asked to play on this record,” says Nick Mason. “I mean, what’s not to like? My favourite recording studio, the opportunity to work with great artists on a wonderful track – and for the most worthy cause… Oh, and complimentary lunch in the Abbey Road canteen!”
“This Christmas Time” was written by Professor Sir Chris Evans, who also plays guitar on the track. The song has been inspired by the heroism and letters home from WWI British soldiers during the Christmas holidays.
Also featured are lead vocalist Casi Wyn, Nick Lloyd Webber on piano, Polly Wiltshire on viola and singer Reebz on vocal harmonies. Actress and singer Samantha Womack provides backing vocals, as does first time singer Nina Lopes, an Ambassador for The Cancer Awareness Trust.
