Boyband take on the classic track for Red Nose Day
One Direction have unveiled their cover of ‘One Way Or Another’ by Blondie – scroll down to listen to it.
The track will be released as this year’s official Comic Relief single on February 17 and will be performed by the group at the BRIT Awards on Wednesday, February 20.
Speaking about their decision to cover the song, the band’s Louis Tomlinson said: “Getting the chance to perform Blondie’s song will be incredible. We’re so excited! Red Nose Day is a great excuse to have a lot of fun and to raise money, please get involved.”
Meanwhile, bookies William Hill have revealed that One Direction are no longer the favourites to be named Best Group at the BRITs next week. The odds are now on Mumford & Sons, who are now 1/2 favourites for the title, to win the Best Group category. “The betting suggest that One Direction will get mugged by Mumford & Sons, which would perhaps have been inconceivable just a couple of weeks ago!” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
Elsewhere, odds on Adele to win best single with ‘Skyfall’ are 1/3 but it is Emeli Sande that is expected to be the biggest winner on the night and she is 1/6 to win Best Album and 1/9 to be named Best Female.
