Robbie Williams is one of a host of stars set to contribute to a Hillsborough charity single which is aiming to be Christmas No.1.
The former Take That singer - winner of 17 Brit awards - will work on the cover of The Hollies' classic He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother.
Produced by Guy Chambers, the song will also feature Paloma Faith, Mel C, Shane MacGowan, Mick Jones (The Clash), Peter Hooton (The Farm), Pete Wylie (The Justice Tonight Band), Richard Hawley, Chris Sharrock (Oasis), Ren Harvieu, Dave McCabe (The Zutons), Paul Heaton (Beautiful South), Hollie Cook, Jon McClure (Reverend & The Makers), John Power (Cast), Beverley Knight and Gerry Marsden (Gerry and the Pacemakers).
Further names are set to be added to this list ahead of the song's release on December 17. All artists involved are giving their time for free, and all proceeds from the sale of the single will go towards the Hillsborough families' legal costs in their fight for justice.
A press conference announcing the project was held at Westminster on Thursday evening, with Kenny Dalglish, Chambers and Steve Rotheram MP breaking the news to assembled media.
Chambers said: "I am deeply honoured to be asked to produce this record for the 96.
"If we can help to raise money to support the families' legal battle so that they finally get their time in court then our job will be done.
"I spent my teenage years in Liverpool and feel a deep affection for both its musical heritage and the unique solidarity of its people."
The original version of the song was used to great effect earlier this season by Everton at Goodison following the release of the Hillsborough Independent Panel's report.
Dalglish added: "The families of the 96 should never have been in the position they are now in, of having to fight to get the accidental verdicts from the 1989 inquests overturned.
"I will continue to support their dignified campaign every step of the way."
Triple Ivor Novello-winning songwriter Chambers has previously worked with Williams, Kylie Minogue, Tom Jones and many others.
The recording sessions will take place at his London studio and at the world famous Metropolis Studios. Pledge Music will also be offering a host of exclusive items via their website to aid the campaign (www.pledgemusic.com).
In 2009, Steve Rotheram, then Lord Mayor of Liverpool, brought together Peter Hooton, John Power, Dave Pichilingi (Sound City), Phil Hayes (The Picket) and Kevin McManus (Liverpool Acme) among others to record Fields of Anfield Road for the 20th anniversary of the Hillsborough tragedy. The record spent two weeks in the top 20.
He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother is expected to go even further and will hopefully challenge the X-Factor winner for the Christmas Number 1 position.
