The single and its elaborate, mystical video has been used to launch the new BBC Music venture with proceeds from the sales of the single going to the BBC Children in Need campaign.
And what’s even more exciting is that half of this all-star cast—featuring a mishmash of genres and styles—includes some of the most exciting ladies working in music today! Lorde, Paloma Faith, Nicola Benedetti, Florence Welch, Kylie Minogue, Chrissie Hynde, and Emeli Sande, as well as others, join the likes of Pharrell Williams, Elton John, Chris Martin, and Stevie Wonder to belt out this all-time classic hit. We think The Beach Boys would be proud!
