Johnny Marr, The Cure, Blossoms are among the artists contributing to a new book that aims to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust.

Artist Pete McKee and Teenage Cancer Trust have co-produced the book that features 19 song lyrics performed on stage for the charity over the past 20 years. It includes handwritten lyrics from artists including Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher, Amy MacDonald, Suede and more.

The book will be released on 21st March and will retail at £25, with all profits going to support Teenage Cancer Trust. You can buy it here.

The book also features lyrics from cancer survivor, and singer of Ishmael Ensemble, Holly Wellington, who was helped by Teenage Cancer Trust. Her song Empty Hands was written about her cancer experience, while Wellington also wrote the foreword to the book.

Yungblud, Liam Gallagher and Ed Sheeran are among the line-up for Teenage Cancer Trust’s annual gig series at London’s Royal Albert Hall later this month. A host of acts, also including Don Broco, Madness, The Who and a line-up of comedy, will also play the iconic venue across a week in late March.

“I’m so excited to be playin’ the Albert Hall for such an incredible and important cause,” Yungblud said of his March 23 gig in a statement.

“It’s gonna be the most mental show the Albert Hall has seen in 150 years, if you think you disagree – come and find out for yourself, I dare ya!”
