Sir David Attenborough - Sir David Attenborough Joins Slash & May On Badger Anthem

Top nature expert Sir David Attenborough has joined Slash and Brian May on their new badger-love anthem.

May has recorded the star-studded track to promote his ongoing campaign against the U.K. government's decision to cull badgers in a bid to combat tuberculosis in cattle.

Badger Swagger, which will be released on Tuesday (04Jun13), also features Massive Attack star Shara Nelson.

The song will hit iTunes just three days after May led thousands of animal lovers on a march through London to protest the badger cull.

Meanwhile, Attenborough has become an unlikely pop headliner in recent days - The Wanted singer Jay MCGuiness named him among the three people he'd most like to sit around a dinner table with during an interview with U.S. newswoman Katie Couric last week (ends31May13).
