Video: #BoobProject (Noel Gallagher, Hozier, Florence Welch And More) - Boob Spelled Backwards Is Boob

This is just great.

Yesterday, we brought you the news that two megastars have teamed up in the name of charity, and now we have the video to show you.

Hozier and Noel Gallagher were joined by a host of other stars, including Florence Welch and Vance Joy, to contribute to “Boob Spelled Backwards is Boob” - a breast cancer charity single.

It's all part of the #BoobProject campaign and the man behind it, American-based Irish DJ Greg McQuaid, has been speaking to JOE about the remarkable story behind this fantastic gesture.

"The lyrics were written by 8-year-old Archer Nelson as a way of dealing with his mom’s breast cancer. I decided to ask all the musicians who visited the station in 2015 to help make the song a reality," he tells us.

"It's heartfelt, sobering but ultimately uplifting. All money raised from the sale of the song and donations will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, a charity that funds research all over the world."

Speaking about trying to convince Noel Gallagher to contribute, Greg revealed:

"Noel was funny because he came in to tape an interview with me. I brought my wife's acoustic guitar to work with me, had someone tune it up and I left it and a #BoobProject sign directly in front of him when we did our interview.

"Sure enough, the very first thing he said when he sat down was "what the f*ck is the #BoobProject?!" I started to explain the song and before I could finish the sentence he's like, "what do you want me to do?""

The single is set for release this Thursday, October 1.

Take a few minutes out to enjoy this cracking video and catchy tune, all for a great cause.
