VIDEO: Gary Barlow and Tulisa debut Children in Need single


X Factor stars Tulisa Contostavlos and Gary Barlow have today revealed their "Urban charity single" for Children in Need. Involving a number of the UK's biggest Urban acts, including N-Dubz, the duo today premiered the video for the track - a cover of Massive Attack's 'Teardrop'.

The song will be released in November with proceeds raised going to Children in Need.

Those featured on the track, as well as Tulisa, include Chipmunk, Tinchy Stryder, Wretch 32, Ms Bratt, Ms Dynamite, Rizzle Kicks and Ed Sheeran, with the group going under the name 'The Collective'.

Labrinth, who is signed to Simon Cowell’s record label, produced the song.

Gary Barlow said: "Children In Need has a history of doing upbeat singles with comedians but it's a serious charity doing a lot of hard work for serious causes."


He added: "It's time to do something with artists who young people actually listen to... It hasn't been easy. But bless him, Labrinth and his manager have been the key to the whole thing."

Speaking to Radio 1 this morning, Tulisa said about the project: "Because everyone was quite urban on the track it was kind of like reuniting, it felt like i was back with grime crew!

"It was nice, it was nice being back with the urban family"

And she said the track was "something different" for the charity: "Everyone expects a big ballad for Children in Need, full of choirs... but this is something completely different. It's current which is why I think it'll do well."

The song will be released on November 13.
