Daily Post

SIR Paul McCartney, Coldplay and U2 are joining forces on a benefit album for Burmese democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi.

They have each contributed a song to the CD along with REM, Eric Clapton, Sting, Avril Lavigne and Travis.

All proceeds from the 27-track album, entitled For The Lady: Dedicated to Freeing Aung San Suu Kyi, will go to the US Campaign for Burma.

Nobel Peace Prize winner Suu Kyi, leader of the National League for Democracy opposition party, has spent the majority of the past 14 years under house arrest by the country's ruling military junta.

"Aung San Suu Kyi is truly one of the world's most important, yet least known, heroes," said Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin.

"No matter how much she suffers, she never backs down in her quest for freedom. That's why Coldplay are supporting this effort, and why everyone who believes in human rights should buy this CD."

The album will feature a U2 song, Walk On, which has been banned in Burma because it is dedicated to Suu Kyi.

U2 singer Bono praised the pro-democracy activist as a "real hero".

Damien Rice, Peter Gabriel, Pearl Jam and Natalie Merchant have also contributed tracks to the album, to be released on October 26.
