I Put a Spell on You - Song for Haiti
Legendary Pogues singer and songwriter Shane MacGowan was deeply moved by the plight of the people of Haiti. With help from his girlfriend, writer Victoria Clarke, they decided to do something about it.
Shane gathered up a handful for other famous musicians and entered a London studio. Together, they recorded a unique version of “I Put a Spell on You,” the classic Screamin’ Jay Hawkins hit from 1956.
The stellar cast featured vocals from Shane MacGowan, Nick Cave and Primal Scream singer Bobby Gillespie, the Sex Pistols’ Glen Matlock, The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde and Paloma Faith and finally Eliza Doolittle. On guitars were James Walbourne, The Clash’s Mick Jones and Johnny Depp, who recorded his parts in LA.
The song will be released on 8 March, with proceeds benefiting Concern Worldwide's Haiti disaster relief fund. Check out the video below.
