During their December 17th show at Albert Hall in Manchester, James performed their beloved single "Sit Down" backed by a string quartet. The band shared the performance as part of a new campaign for Musicians Against Homelessness.

Leader Tim Booth was thrilled to help raise funds and awareness with "Sit Down"

"Sit Down is a song about empathy so we are really honoured and happy that this beautiful version, arranged by Joe Duddell, is being used to raise money for the homeless.

We seem to be living in times of increasing inequality where all the safety nets that my generation took for granted have been taken away. "I don't know how a person can hold their life together if they don't have a home, a cave, someplace safe they can call their own. It is too easy for us to look the other way. Thank you to the kind souls who are running this charitable organisation for not doing so."

Musicians Against Homelessness organized successful campaigns in the past which have raised over 150 thousand dollars. The charity was founded in 2016 by Alan McGee (founder of Creation Records) with the hopes of helping out the homeless while also giving artists a high profile opportunity to have their music heard. To learn more about the organization and how to donate, visit the official website here.

Watch the video of "Sit Down" below.

James hit the road later this year for their Better Than That tour, however no North American dates have been announced.
