FOOTBALL UNITED THE WORLD

FOOTBALL UNITED THE WORLD is the brainchild of football fan and record producer Dan Weller and LostAlone frontman Steven Battelle. Released to mark the 2014 World Cup, the track features a star studded cast of UK and international rock bands, with proceeds going to Street Child World Cup.

With World Cup fever taking hold this summer, Weller and Battelle saw an opportunity to bring the UK rock scene together with one voice, to celebrate the occasion and achieve something positive for underprivileged children around the World. Having written the track, the two set about getting the cream of the UK and international rock scene involved.

FOOTBALL UNITED THE WORLD was recorded at Slam Dunk festival and in various studios throughout the UK during May, featuring the vocal prowess of bands including Enter Shikari, Don Broco, Fearless Vampire Killers, Kids In Glass Houses, Marmozets, Blitz Kids and Skindred amongst others.

Proceeds from sales of the track will go to charity Street Child World Cup.  Street Child World Cup is global movement for street children to receive the protection, rehabilitation and opportunities that all children are entitled to.  Street Child World Cup works together with Save The Children, their aim to provide a platform for street children to be heard, to challenge negative stereotypes of street children and to promote the rights of street children.


Weller said: “There are few events that unite the World like the World Cup, it’s a time that everyone can forget their differences and unite through celebration and competition.  Many rock bands I work with are passionate about football, and this is a great opportunity to come together and raise some money for a very important cause.”
