Other stars to be included are Bono of U2, Coldplay's Chris Martin, Paloma Faith, Underworld, Sinead O'Connor, Foals and Bastille who have given up a pair of arena dates to record their contribution to the track.

Ellie Goulding, Olly Murs and Sam Smith will all also be involved.

Bob Geldof and Midge Ure revealed that the song's lyrics are to be changed to reflect the Ebola crisis, and the version is to be recorded this weekend on Saturday, made available for download on Monday, November 17.

Different versions are to be recorded in France, Germany and America - "Think Daft Punk. Think Johnny Hallyday," said Geldof in a press conference.

Money raised is to go towards the fight against Ebola in West Africa.
