Fire Fight Australia releases compilation album for bushfire relief

The release is only available for physical or digital purchase, no streaming

The organisers of Fire Fight Australia have followed the bushfire relief event with a live compilation album, entitled ‘Artists Unite for Fire Fight’.

The new release seeks to raise further funds for bushfire relief, after the huge charity concert raised $9.5 million. ‘Artists Unite for Fire Fight’ is a physical or digital purchase only release, with no streaming option.

Apart from John Farnham, each artist gets one song recorded live at the Fire Fight Australia event across two CDs. The event featured performances from a litany of international artists, including Canadian artist k.d. lang, who performed a moving rendition of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’, plus Queen and Adam Lambert, who played the band’s iconic 1985 Live Aid setlist “for the first time in [the band’s] history”. Local acts included John Farnham, Olivia Newton-John, Daryl Braithwaite, Hilltop Hoods, Icehouse, Amy Shark, Baker Boy, Peking Duk and many more.
