Blur's Damon Albarn, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos and Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Nick Zinner will put out a special charity track next weekend (July 13) in aid of Oxfam's Syria appeal.

The artists will all feature on the track from Fresh Touch - a musical and cultural exchange project spearheaded by XL records boss Richard Russell and producer Rodaidh McDonald. It is one of 10 exclusive vinyl releases which will only be available at next weekend's Independent Label Market - a regular event where Britain's independent record labels put on a market to sell records straight to music fans. All proceeds from the releases will go to Oxfam’s Syria Crisis Appeal. Other artists to donate tracks to the one-off collection include Charli XCX and exclusive remixes from Liquid Liquid, Four Tet and Factory Floor.

Some 50 copies of each exclusive track will be sold at the London event at Old Spitalfields Market on July 13. Each 12" will be hand numbered and will feature an etching on the B-side. They will be sold for £10 each and will be limited to only one copy per customer. All proceeds will go to Oxfam's Syria Crisis Appeal, which aims to provide shelter, food and water to those affected by the conflict in Syria. For more information about the appeal visit www.oxfam.org.uk/syria.

The list of special charity tracks is as follows:

Fresh Touch - 'Latest Style' (Angular Records)
Beth Orton - 'Carmella (Four Tet remix)' (Heavenly)
Tim Burgess - 'The Doors Of Then (Factory Floor - Dominic Butler 'Michael Cliffe House remix')' (O Genesis)
