Julian Lennon announces Christmas single

The artist reworks Stephen Emmer and Neil Crossley’s Sleep For England.

Julian Lennon - Sleep For England

Julian Lennon is releasing a re-worked version of Stephen Emmer and Neil Crossley’s Sleep For England in time for Christmas.

The original version of the song featured on Emmer’s critically acclaimed album International Blue and has been given the Christmas treatment incorporating sleigh bells and a boys choir. Sleep For England is produced by Tony Visconti and will be released on 15th December 2014.

Sleep For England is inspired by classic alternative Christmas songs such as Jona Lewie’s Stop The Cavalry and Happy Xmas (War Is Over) by John Lennon. All proceeds from the single go to Julian’s charity The White Feather Foundation, which tackles environmental and humanitarian issues. In conjunction with global partners it helps to raise funds for the betterment of all life and honor those who really have made a difference. 1.2 billion people are without clean water, something we take for granted in the Western World. Therefore all single proceeds will be going towards the production of more clean water, where every penny can help save thousands of lives.

Sleep For England will be added to an extended version of the International Blue’ album, which will get a physical release on CD on January 1st 2015
