Fresh from the hearts and minds of the fine folks behind the North American Halloween Prevention Initiative, comes the single “Do They Know It’s Halloween,” featuring an all-star cast saying “Enough!” to Halloween. A rallying cry to finally stamp out this most scary of holidays, the single features such lumiaries as Beck, David Cross, Jimmy Tamborello from The Postal Service, The Arcade Fire, Sonic Youth, Dan and Spencer from Wolf Parade, and a ton of others.
PLUS, proceeds from the sale of the single will benefit UNICEF !!!
While this single is clearly a parody of any number of things, it’s for a good cause. You can find out more about “Do They Know It’s Halloween” here, and you can hear the song online here.
The folks at Vice Records will be releasing this song on CD-single and 12" vinyl single October 11th.
