The Long Road
A ground-breaking concept record created with world renowned artists, The Long Road, spotlights real-life experiences of refugees and asylum seekers in the UK and across the world. Brit Award winner Ethan Johns, who has worked with the Kings of Leon, Laura Marling and The Vaccines, is producing the record. The release will be out early next year and is available to pre-order today.

Robert Plant, who recorded a version of Elbow track’s ‘The Blanket Of Night’, which tells the tale of refugees attempting a treacherous journey to attain asylum in the UK stated: “We have a worldwide international catastrophe - talking about it is one thing, doing something about it is another. The position we are in, it’s paramount we all do our best one way or another to help.”

Grammy Award-winning group Tinariwen have also contributed to the record, recording a new track titled, ‘Silence’. Tinariwen’s founder Ibrahim Ag Alhabib was a refugee himself as a child and was forced to flee his home in Mali after his father was executed in the 1963 uprising in Mali.

The Long Road also sees previously announced artists including spoken word poet Scroobius Pip, songwriter-producer Kindness and the Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars record tracks inspired by the experiences of refugees. Several tracks featured on the release have involved musicians working with a refugee helped by the British Red Cross, to tell their story of being forced to flee their home and seek safety in the UK.

All profits from this release go to the British Red Cross to help support refugees and asylum seekers in the UK:  http://www.redcross.org.uk/What-we-do/Refugee-support
