Sometimes Silence is the Answer

Put Thom Yorke, Mark Ronson and Bryan Ferry together in a recording studio and what do you get? Silence. I bet that's not the answer you were looking for! The three collaborated along with the likes of British prime minister David Cameron, actor Bob Hoskins and tennis star Andy Murray to create a 'silent' single to commemorate Britain's Remembrance Day. The single, named British Legion 2 Minute Silence and accompanied by a video, will be released on November 7. All proceeds benefiting British military veterans.

"Rather than record a song, we felt the UK public would recognize the poignancy of silence and its clear association with remembrance," explained Chris Simpkins, the Director General of the Royal British League.
