The Declining Winter Official World Cup Theme 2010

Have a sneak preview listen here

Pre-order your limited edition CD version with exclusive tracks, postcard souvenir and more goodies . £3.49 plus postage. click HERE to buy

Probably one of our more madcap ideas of recent years is to write and record a World Cup song for this summers competition. Produced by Choque Hosein, it features the theme itself backed with a new version of 'Red Kite' which originally appeared on the compilation 'Music and Migration' earlier this year.

There will also be an instrumental version of the World Cup song so you can sing along at home. We will be doing a collector pleasing limited CD run on Home Assembly Music which comes with exclusive numbered postcard and other collectibles.
