In Fucked Up's annual tradition of dropping a Christmas themed 7"/MP3 they have released a rousing cover of the 1980's Bob Geldoff classic 'Do They Know It's Christmas?'. For the single they have assembled a pretty all star cast of indie hipsters such as Andrew W.K., David Cross, Bob Mould (Sugar), Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend), GZA, Kyp Malone (TV on the Radio), Tegan & Sara, Kevin Drew (Broken Social Scene), and Yo La Tengo.
Like last year, this release will be 100% for charity. The money from the sale of this mp3, and the 7" (where this song will be the b-side to a new FU song called "Davids Plan", and will be released mid February) will be split between three groups, 'Justice for Missing and Murdered Ingigenous Women
', 'DTES Power of Women Group
', and 'Sisters in Spirit
'. So please don't illegally download this tune and spend the $0.99.
