Bez signs up for World Cup anthem

The Happy Mondays star takes on Embrace

Happy Mondays‘ maraca wielding legend Bez has decided to follow Alex James and Fat Les by having a stab at releasing his own unofficial World Cup anthem.

The single, which will rival Embrace’s official World Cup song ‘World At Your Feet’, is Bez’s first official solo release in the UK.

Entitled ‘One Dream’, a release date is yet to be confirmed but features the lyrics: “One ball/One team/Three Lions/One dream.”

As previously reported on NME.COM James and Fat Les star Keith Allen are in talks to record an unofficial song too.

“Every winter I forget how cold it gets, and it’s like that with every World Cup – you forget how fucking huge it is,” the Blur bassist told NME.COM. “The whole world comes to a halt. People have been saying, ‘Are you going to do a football record?’ and I’m like, ‘No’, but you start getting a sniff of it. And it’s like, ‘Embrace?. I’d do a fucking better job than that.’ Keith Allen‘s been calling. I’ve been thinking about it.”

He added: “Ian McCulloch‘s been singing ‘Come on, come on, you fucking England’ to the Bryan Ferry song ‘Let’s Stick Together’. You take the backing track from that, stick McCulloch singing ‘Come on, come on, you fucking England!’ and Embrace can fucking suck my cock.”
