Australian artists unite for cancer charity single

The Screaming Jets
The Screaming Jets

A total of 37 musicians from more than 17 Australian bands have joined together to record a charity single to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer.

The project is titled One In Seven, and bands including The Screaming Jets, Baby Animals, Massive, Tequila Mockingbyrd, Electric Mary, Dirt River Radio and Sonic Citizen have contributed to the track, a version of Pete Seeger’s classic Turn! Turn! Turn!, a hit for The Byrds in 1965.

A statement reads: “We’re over the moon to announce that our charity single Turn! Turn! Turn! will be released on November 3. It’s an upbeat song for the times featuring over 20 vocalists, six drummers, six guitarists and three bassists. It is also the only known version of this song to feature a didgeridoo!

“We’re raising funds and awareness for prostate cancer, which affects one in seven Australian men. It is currently the second highest cause of male cancer death, yet it is one of the most survivable cancers if detected early. Please visit www.prostate.org.au for more information.”

Turn! Turn! Turn! is available for pre-order (opens in new tab) and all funds raised will be donated to Prostate Cancer Foundation Of Australia, Movember Foundation Australia, Prostate Cancer UK and Rennie Grove Hospice Care.
