The single, a cover of the Hollies’ famous hit “ ”He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”, is 1/5 favourite with bookmakers to top the UK music charts when it is officially released on 17 December.

Proceeds will support the justice campaign spearheaded by the families of the 96 who died in the Hillsborough stadium disaster on 15 April 1989.
