Music 4 Ukraine is releasing the charity single ‘Heal This Broken Land’ on Friday 30th of September 2022, accompanied by an official music video . The song is an ambitious rework of the 1988 hit ‘ Broken Land ’ by The Adventures, which was the most played track on BBC Radio 1 for that year and remains a firm radio favourite to this day. Originally written for the tragic events of The Troubles in Northern Ireland, the new version adapts its emotive theme, powerful lyrics and haunting melodies to reflect on the disastrous conflict between Ukraine and Russia, marking the 6 months since the beginning of the ongoing invasion.
‘Heal This Broken Land ’ features the original artist The Adventures and other iconic artists from the 80s such as The Christians , Nick Heyward, T’Pau , Then Jerico, Brother Beyond, Doctor and The Medics, as well as backing singers Kelly Barnes and Ben J A and accomplished production teams. The single received incredible reception on its symbolic launch at this summer’s animal welfare fundraiser Forever Young Festival to a crowd of 26,000 people, and has already confirmed the support of over 20 radio stations in Ireland ready to air the song upon its release and aid the cause.
