Street Lights Reveal ‘Homeward Bound’ Video

The Street Lights collective have just released the video to their special cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s classic single ‘Homeward Bound’ and announced the track listing for the upcoming Street Lights album.

Ireland’s musicians joined forces as ‘Street Lights’ to release ‘Homeward Bound’ and the album ‘Street Lights’ to generate funds for the most vulnerable, our homeless. Peter McVerry Trust, Simon Community Ireland and Focus Ireland will be the recipients of all profits of the single and album sales, which they have agreed will go directly to rehoming and rehousing on a national level. To donate €4 to the Street Lights Project text street lights to 50300 (Focus Ireland, Simon Community and Peter McVerry Trust between them will receive a minimum of €3.60. Service Provider: LIKECHARITY. Helpline: 076 6805278)

15 songs have been carefully selected by artists and organisers to feature on the self titled album ‘Street Lights’ which will be released on Friday 7 December. The album features songs from Bell X1, Snow Patrol, Saint Sister, Richard Hawley with Lisa Hannigan, James Vincent McMorrow, Damien Dempsey, Luka Bloom, Villagers, Stephen James Smith, David Gray, The Frames, Lisa O’Neill, Glenn & Ronan and Celtic Woman.
