Mccartney Loves Duffy Cover

Singer DUFFY has recorded a version of SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY's classic song LIVE AND LET DIE for charity - and the BEATLES legend is astonished with the result.
The Welsh songstress tackled the hit Bond theme for her contribution to the upcoming War Child charity album Heroes.
And MCCartney is bowled over with the new version of his Oscar-nominated Wings song.
The track is among a host of classic cover versions slated for inclusion on the new album, which is due for release in November (08).
As part of the project, a legion of musical legends including Bob Dylan, David Bowie, and Beach Boys founder Brian Wilson have chosen a song from their back catalogue for a young artist of their choice to cover.
MCCartney says, "I think Duffy's version of Live And Let Die is great - I was really impressed. The breadth of talent on this project is amazing; it's great that so many people gave their time, energy and support to this initiative. I urge everyone to support War Child."
Among other tracks featured on the release are Beck's version of Dylan's Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat, The Kooks' cover of Victoria by The Kinks, and a recording of Joy Division's Transmission by Hot Chip.
Singer Rufus Wainwright will record a medley of two songs from Wilson's Smile album.
