Songwriter Guy Chambers has produced the track and previously spoke about his motivation for recording the song. “I am deeply honoured to be asked to produce this record for the 96,” he said. “If we can help to raise money to support the families’ legal battle so that they finally get their time in court then our job will be done.”
