Good afternoon. You might remember that, back in 2006, a Cuban-styled version of Clocks featured on the Rhythms Del Mundo album, released by Artists Project Earth (APE), a UK organisation which focuses on disaster relief and climate change awareness.
Now, APE is releasing a new Rhythms Del Mundo album, ‘Revival’. which includes an updated version of the Latin-flavoured Clocks, featuring Lele, the singer from top Cuban band Los Van Van. You can hear a clip of the new track above.
‘Revival’ is released worldwide this week and is available from all major music retailers. If you’re in the UK, Amazon have the CD here and the download here. You can also get the album (or just the Clocks track) from iTunes by clicking here.
The album, which also features re-workings of tracks by acts including Bob Dylan, Green Day and Gorillaz, will support relief efforts in Haiti, Chile, and Tibet following the recent catastrophes in these regions. You can find out more about Rhythm Del Mundo at their official site.
