It’s a charity single with a difference – two minutes of complete silence.

Featuring Radiohead's Thom Yorke, Andy Murray, Mark Ronson, Brian Ferry and many others have taken part in the “recording”, which will benefit The Royal British Legion.

For just 99p the UK public can show their respect, support and thanks to those Armed Forces personnel who have made sacrifices for us all. The ‘2 Minute Silence’ single will be available for download on i-Tunes from Sunday 7 November.

In addition to celebrities and sports stars, the silent single features ex-Service personnel, including Corporal Simon Brown, who was shot in the face by a sniper in Iraq, and commented: “The Legion, for me has been a massive support… When I got home after Iraq, they offered me a lifeline and gave me the confidence to go out there and be part of society.”

Funds raised through the sale of this single will go towards helping individuals, like Corporal Brown, within the serving and ex-Service Armed Forces community.

The Royal British Legion wanted to create a unique and engaging way for the British public to show their support, as noted by The Royal British Legion’s Director General, Chris Simpkins: “We invite the public to join the celebrities and soldiers in observing two minutes’ silence and we would encourage everyone to show their support by downloading the track from i-Tunes on 7 November. Rather than record a song, we felt the UK public would recognise the poignancy of silence and its clear association with Remembrance.”
