Other musicians involved with the project include Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly, VV Brown, Sam Sparro, Fink, Reverend and the Makers, Eliza Doolittle, and Tim Burgess.
“Fall of Rome,” the first single from the album, is now available for download. The album, entitled “Dream Service,” is due out on April 11, 2011. The profits from the album will go to education and employment projects in Brazil, Africa, and the UK.
