War Child are releasing a new compilation album this morning to mark their 20th anniversary.

The Best of War Child features covers from their previous charity records - and includes tracks by Radiohead, Sir Paul McCartney, David Bowie and Coldplay.

"War Child seemed a really ingenious and new way of doing something that might have a little more comment than the usual charity sing-song affairs," David Bowie commented.

It comes ahead of War Child's pre BRIT Awards gig with Muse at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire tonight.
