Glasgow band December release charity single honouring U2

Glasgow band December release charity single honouring U2

Glasgow band December have found exactly what they're looking for.

The indy rockers are long-term lovers of the music of U2 and have just recorded a charity single called Alison Stewart.

The band members said they owe their passion for music and performing to the work of the Irish super group.

And their new song, which will be released on November 2, also highlights the contribution of Ali Hewson (nee Stewart) who is married to Bono.

The track was penned after the band changed their previous identity [The Janes] and record label, having faced the ups and downs of trying to make it in the music business.

The group intends to donate all proceeds from the single to Chernobyl Children International, a cause close to Ali Hewson's heart.

Guitarist Scott Pattison said: "We really wanted to call it after Ali. It’s a tribute to her too - U2 and their fans owe her a debt of gratitude.

"We want to honour them and say 'thank you', and as songwriters, this is the best way we know how.

"We wouldn't be musicians or songwriters if it wasn't for for them."

Scott and his band colleagues, including singer Ails Pattison, were in Dublin this weekend to complete filming for the new video.

And they admit to being nervous, but excited, about moving forward with the project.

He said: "When we wrote the song, we imagined Ali looking back on the early days of the band and then at their Live Aid appearance - and encouraging the surrender they sing so much about and which is so important.

"If they ever hear the song, we hope they will appreciate the spirit in which we offer it.

"This is our tribute to them all. We also can’t wait to see them when their tour hits Glasgow [at the SSE Hydro on November 6]."
