Ash and We Are Scientists have teamed up to record a song to help raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The two bands have joined forces to lay down a version of 'Washington Parks' by songwriter and Multiple Sclerosis sufferer Robert Manning. Ed Harcourt, Tim Wheeler and his partner Emmy The Great have also recorded different versions of the same song as part of the charity project.

Chris Cain of We Are Scientists explained the idea behind the song’s production to Examiner:
The concept of the song is that if you listen to it on headphones or stereo the musicians of Ash are on the left channel and all the We Are Scientists guys are playing it in the right channel. We're playing the same song essentially but in different ways.
