Fresh Touch, the new supergroup made up of Damon Albarn, Flea, Tony Allen, Nick Zinner, and Alex Kapranos will be releasing a new single on vinyl for charity July 13th. All proceeds will go to the Syrian refugee relief charity, Oxfam’s Syria Crisis Appeal.
In 2011, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea joined by Damon Albarn of Blur and drummer Tony Allen, first came together to release the album Rocket Juice and the Moon. Now they are teaming with Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand and Nick Zinner (who has been involved in his fair share of charity work as of late) of the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s to form supergroup Fresh Touch.

The charity works to provide food, shelter and clean water to all of those affected by the Syrian crisis.
The band has released the single “Latest Style” in honor of the cause. It will be available on one of the 50 limited edition 7″ numbered vinyls. The single can be purchase directly at the east London Independent Label Market at the Old Spitalfields Market on July 13th.
