There may not be an official England song for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, but following England’s victories at the Under-17 and Under-20 World Cups last year, more of the country’s teenagers are teaming up with the nation’s top TV commentators to inspire the senior team to glory this summer.
‘The DC Klub’ is a brand new group joining forces with the best known football voices in the country for the catchyWorld Cup anthem called ‘Let’s Hear It England’. It’s a song for the 21st century that reflects the modern game with singers of all ages and both sexes.
Featuring on the track are specially recorded clips of Martin Tyler and Rob Hawthorne
from Sky, Steve Wilson and Guy Mowbray from BBC TV, Clive Tyldesley from ITV, Ian
Darke from BT Sport, and Peter Drury and Jon Champion from Premier League
Productions, who are the voices of the Premier League heard all around the world.
Supporting vocals have been provided by students from Dean Close School in
Cheltenham and the Cotswold Male Voice Choir. The video includes rarely seen archive footage of England’s World Cup winning team of 1966 including Sir Alf Ramsey, Bobby Moore and Sir Bobby Charlton. It was filmed in part at the University of Gloucestershire under the guidance of a young Russian Film Director.
Steve Wilson said: “Well it’s not often you get eight commentators in the same room,
and it’s even rarer that you get eight commentators on the same song. Catchy one too. Good way to support England. Good way to support a good cause.”
Ian Darke added: “We hope this bright catchy tune could become the soundtrack to a bold England World Cup campaign.”
The track can be seen at http://smarturl.it/LetsHearItEngland and received from Absolute Label Services for sales of the recording will be passed to charity until the end of 2019.
