Watch: The Children In Need cover of “God Only Knows”: The annual Children In Need charity single is a big deal in Britain, with all proceeds from its sale going to the charity. The problem is, it’s often a bit wank (its Red Nose Day counterparts tend to be a little bit better). In the last ten years, there have only been two decent picks and they’ve both come from Girls Aloud, 2004’s “I’ll Stand By You” and “Something New” in 2012. So although its predecessors haven’t set the world alight, this year’s song is a damn good choice, and features one of the most glamourous line-ups in a pop single, since probably the first Band Aid. Led by pop icon Brian Wilson, with a cover of The Beach Boys’ immortal track “God Only Knows”, it’s - deep breath - Sir Elton John, One Direction, Stevie Wonder, Pharrell Williams, Jake Bugg, Lorde, Emeli Sandé, Chris Martin, Kylie Minogue, Paloma Faith, Sam Smith and Florence Welch; rock musicians Chrissie Hynde, Brian May and Dave Grohl; classical musicians Alison Balsom, Martin James Bartlett, Danielle de Niese and Nicola Benedetti; folk performer Eliza Carthy; Senegalese singer Baaba Maal; jazz performer Jamie Cullum; British Asian Music star Jaz Dhami; the BBC’s Zane Lowe, Lauren Laverne, Katie Derham, Gareth Malone and Jools Holland; with the youthful vocals of the Tees Valley Youth Choir and the BBC Concert Orchestra… Phew. They should really come up with a catchier name, one that doesn’t take several minutes to say and type. 

The track is released on iTunes at midnight, and is also being used to promote the BBC’s new Music initiative, with this video for the track having premiered simultaneously across every BBC TV and radio station tonight.
