30 years after the original song was originally released, Sir Bob Geldof has organised another star studded line-up to sing this years relief song in aid of the African Ebola crisis which has, since its outbreak, killed over 5000 people.

In the coming weeks a CD version will be made available at the cost of £4 but not available on streaming sites or for free until January 2015.
