In an important collaboration, Fontaines D.C., Massive Attack, and Young Fathers are releasing a limited edition 12” single with all profits going to Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF).

The proceeds will help in aiding their emergency operations in Gaza and the West Bank.

Fans can pre-order this impactful release now, which features both new material from Fontaines and a separate collaboration between Young Fathers and Massive Attack.

The record not only stands as a musical gesture but also as a call for an immediate ceasefire in the region, echoing the sentiments of solidarity with the Palestinian people. The sleeve and print, designed by Robert Del Naja, add to the single’s significance. There will also be a limited edition, artist-signed large-print sale of the single’s artwork, available here.

On the reverse, a poignant quote from MSF medic Dr. Mahmoud Abu Nujaila, who tragically lost his life, reads: “Whoever stays until the end will tell the story. We did what we could. Remember us.”

While full details of the tracks are yet to be revealed, the commitment of these artists to the cause is clear. Massive Attack’s 3D expressed deep respect for the medics in Gaza, emphasizing the tribute this EP pays to their courageous work. “We stand in solidarity with the people of Palestine,” he added.

Fontaines D.C. also shared their stance, advocating for an immediate ceasefire and an end to the occupation of Palestine. They hope this record will raise funds for the critical work of Doctors Without Borders in Gaza, joining a global chorus demanding change and support for the Palestinian people.

The response from the music world to the crisis in Israel and Gaza continues to grow, with other artists like Stormzy, Clairo, Taylor Swift, and Selena Gomez actively participating in benefit events and fundraisers.

This unique collaboration, featuring Fontaines D.C., Massive Attack, and Young Fathers, offers more than just music—it’s a call to action and a beacon of hope in the midst of turmoil.
