    Story

    Wayne Hussey and friends remake the classic Mission anthem

    Tower Of Strength

    In support of key workers dealing with Covid-19 globally

    All proceeds to charities personally chosen by each contributor

    From Wayne Hussey: “When Covid-19 hit I started receiving messages asking ‘why don’t you re-issue Tower Of Strength for the front line workers?’ The song had apparently been adopted as an anthem by some NHS workers, and it got me thinking that I would like to contribute something to the greater cause at this unprecedented time and the only thing I could really contribute is music. So in conjunction with my good friend Michael Ciravolo, I came up with the idea of recording a new version of Tower Of Strength for charity by enlisting the help of musician friends and acquaintances. Tower Of Strength was first released by The Mission as single in 1988 and then again in 1994. It charted twice in the UK top 40 and has proved to be probably our biggest song and the one we generally close our shows with. It is anthemic. I wondered if recording a more well known song might have a greater reach but neither Michael or I could come up with any suggestions that seemed to fit lyrically without getting too corny. So Tower Of Strength it was then.”

    “Usually I detest things that are done for charity that are also self-serving, but I came up with a plan that satisfied my conscience. I spoke with my fellow Mission band members who co-wrote the song - Craig Adams, Mick Brown and Simon Hinkler - and we agreed to give up any publishing income generated by the new version to nominated charities, including mechanical and performance royalties and 100% of any revenue raised by sales. TOS2020 has been renamed to divert funds from the original version, and the charities will all be personally nominated by the people involved in its recording and release. Because the musical contributions are global our idea is that the proceeds will be divided and distributed equally among all the beneficiaries.

    Whilst all the versions will be available to listen to on all streaming platforms I'm gonna ask you to help the cause by buying at least the digital package which is priced at only £2.99. It's not much, is it? For the price of a coffee you'll receive all five versions. Come on, help us to help others.” Wayne Hussey, Sao Paulo, Brazil, 9th August, 2020.
