Stones And Winehouse Sing For Climate Change

THE ROLLING STONES, AMY WINEHOUSE, FALL OUT BOY and THE KILLERS have teamed up to record a new covers album to raise money for charity.
A host of the world's biggest artists perform duets with Cuban band Rhythms Del Mundo on the album, called Classics - the proceeds of which will fund climate change projects and natural disaster relief around the world.
The Killers sing The Eagles' Hotel California; The Rolling Stones take on The Drifters' Under the Boardwalk; Winehouse performs
Sam Cooke's Cupid; and Fall Out Boy and John Mayer team up to cover Michael Jackson's Beat It on the disc, which goes on sale in July (09).
The project was inspired by the tsunami which struck the Indian Ocean in 2005, and follows a previous Rhythms Del Mundo album which featured a collaboration with Coldplay and helped 175 charitable projects around the globe.
