Bob Geldof organised an all-star cast for the 1984 recording of “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” to raise funds for famine-relief efforts in Ethiopia. On the 30th anniversary of the release, the musician/philanthropist reworked the song to support West African nations in their fight against the Ebola virus. The 2014 version features cover artwork by Tracey Emin and a stunning line-up of pop superstars, including Bono, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, One Direction, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sandé, and Ellie Goulding. All proceeds from the sale of this single will go to The Band Aid Charitable Trust.
