War Child UK has announced the release of ‘Dear John’, a tribute album marking John Lennon‘s 80th birthday which features new interpretations of the late artist’s classic tracks.

Set for release on June 11, the record is a live recording of last year’s virtual charity concert which was organised by Blurred Vision vocalist Sepp Osley.

“I began reaching out to artists around the world who I respected and admired,” Sepp explained.
