Bono and Chris Martin have teamed up for a song that mocks Live Aid, femalefirst.co.uk reports.
The pair — both keen charity campaigners who were instrumental in getting together Band Aid 20 for their charity cover of Do They Know It’s Christmas? — appear on Dove Of Peace, taken from Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest movie Bruno.
Studio insiders say Bono and Chris were so amused by lyrics to the fashion-spoof song — which include, “For people of Africa who live in Hell/ They will never wear Chanel” — they were almost unable to record their lines.
A source told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper: “Chris Martin was laughing throughout the recording and only just managed to get his lines out.
“Bruno promises to be the funniest and most outrageous film this year and in it Sacha’s character releases a brilliantly cheesy but subversive single — Dove Of Peace — which mocks the likes of Band Aid. It runs close to the bone but it’s very tongue-in-cheek.”
Singer Sting is also due to record a part of the song, while Baron Cohen friend Madonna has been approached too.
“If the film is successful, there’s every chance the song will be released as a single.”
