Peace Collective releases Christmas Truce single ‘All Together Now’

Well-known musicians have joined forces with young footballers from the UK and Germany to create a single that recalls the Christmas Truce of 1914.

The song – a version of All Together Now by The Farm – is sung by the Peace Collective and features youngsters from Premier League and Bundesliga Clubs who appear in its video wearing their football shirts.

The song was originally written to tell the tale of the 1914 Christmas Truce, when British and German troops laid down their arms and may have played football in no man’s land.

Proceeds to charity

Among the artists appearing on the record are: Alexandra Burke, Gorgon City, Gabrielle, The Proclaimers, Engelbert Humperdinck and members of The Farm themselves.

All profits from the release will go to the British Red Cross and the Shorncliffe Trust.

Peter Hooton, lead singer of The Farm, said on Facebook: ‘It [the Christmas Truce] is a story of hope and peace which should be told over and over again.

‘I’m so very proud that so many artistes from all styles of music and the football authorities have come together to promote peace and reconciliation this Christmas and raise funds for the brilliant work carried out by the British Red Cross and Shorncliffe Trust.’
