Fucked Up to re-record ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’

NYmag.com reports that Canadian Polaris Music Prize winners Fucked Up are planning on using the money from the prize to record a charity single.

Damian Abraham, the band’s singer told the Vulture blog:

David Cross, members of Vampire Weekend, TV on the Radio, Broken Social Scene, the GZA, Bob Mould, No Age, and Yo La Tengo are all confirmed. I’m still waiting on confirmation from Feist, Jarvis Cocker, and M.I.A. We wanted the biggest people we could get. If we could get a Jonas Brother on this, I would get a Jonas Brother.
