Ten years ago the original Help album, which featured Oasis, Massive Attack and Blur, raised more than £1.25m for children caught up in the Bosnian war. The 2005 album, Help: A Day In The Life, aims to help the victims of conflict around the world and is being coordinated by the War Child charity (www.warchild.org.uk). Help: A Day In The Life was released exclusively for download on Friday September 9 from www.warchildmusic.com and the full album will also be released on CD on September 26.
