Three Lions back for World Cup

The football World Cup is fast approaching and next Monday, May 17, Parlophone will release a new version of the greatest England football song ever written, ‘Three Lions’, re-recorded by ‘The Squad’.

The Squad

Produced by the legendary Trevor Horn and featuring the song’s original writer Ian Broudie, the new version includes vocals from Robbie Williams, Russell Brand, The Official England Band and fans from The Official England Supporters Club. John Motson provides the commentary and soprano Olivia Safe provides a goose bump inducing ‘It’s coming home’. David Baddiel and Frank Skinner, the song’s original creators, also feature on the track.

Robbie Williams says: “I’ve always been approached to write football songs but have alwas declined as I thought 3 Lions could never be beaten – so I am really happy to be part of this record. I am counting down the days until the start of the World Cup.”

The World Cup, which is being held in South Africa, starts on June 11.
