A hopeful transmission? Coldplay contribute to tinnitus album
Thursday 24 January 2013
Coldplay and the Black Eyed Peas are among the bands donating tracks for a new charity album to raise awareness of tinnitus.
A host of musicians, producers and DJs have pledged songs for I Am The One In Ten, which is being put together to raise funds for the British Tinnitus Association (BTA).
All tracks on the album will be performed by artists who have tinnitus, including Coldplay's Chris Martin.
Other big names set to feature include Embrace, Enter Shikari, DJ Fresh and Sub Focus.
The album is the brainchild of DJ and producer Eddy Temple Morris, an ambassador for the BTA.
Eddy said: "I'm so happy that Chris Martin has given this his blessing. With Coldplay on board, at last we have a real chance to get through to Government now - this album could be a game-changer."
Eddy wants other music industry people with tinnitus to be involved with the project.
Eddy said: "For this to be given the best possible chance, I need a record label to put this out. But for the idea to work, the label boss, or my contact there, has to have tinnitus.
"We've had several smaller labels offer their support, for which we are hugely grateful. What would be great is if somebody at a big record label sees this and pledges their support."
