Keane track on new War Child album

At tomorrow night's BRIT Awards, the charity War Child will receive the Special Recognition award to mark 20 years of helping children in the world's most war-torn regions.

To celebrate, the charity has released a new compilation, The Best of War Child, which features 20 tracks from bands including Muse, Radiohead, Paul McCartney, Coldplay and Keane. The Keane song is a cover of Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, which they recorded with Faultline for a War Child compilation in 2005. Those of you in the UK and Ireland can buy the track or the album from iTunes by clicking here (it isn't being released elsewhere, unfortunately).

I just read the album setlist on twitter, it's fantastic. We live in a selfish world that is a relief to see this kind of attitude. I'm so glad that Keane is part of it. Beijos, Regina.
