Beady Eye are releasing a cover of The Beatles' 'Across The Universe' to aid the relief effort in Japan.

Liam Gallagher's band recorded the song at Abbey Road Studios before playing it at a fundraiser at London's O2 Academy Brixton last night (April 3) for the victims of the recent Japan tsunami and earthquakes.

The song, which originally features on the Fab Four's 1970 album 'Let It Be', is available to download from Beadyeyemusic.com now.

Proceeds will go to the British Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal.

Primal Scream, Paul Weller, Richard Ashcroft and Stereophonics' Kelly Jones, Graham Coxon and The Coral also performed at last night's fundraiser.

Beady Eye are on the cover of the new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands now and available digitally.
