Katie Melua is to release this year’s official single for the BBC Children In Need charity drive. The cover of ‘Fields Of Gold’ was recorded in tribute to the appeal’s late frontman Terry Wogan, who counted the Sting original as one of his favourite songs.

“I am delighted to have accepted the invitation by BBC Children in Need to record and release this single to support the charity’s 2017 appeal, in honour of the late Sir Terry Wogan”, says Melua.

“He was a long-standing supporter of mine, and to re-record one of his favourite songs for a charity that was so dear to his heart is a privilege. I hope it goes on to make a real and lasting difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK”.

All profits from the single, which is out today, will be donated to Children In Need. Melua will also perform the song during the Children In Need telethon on 17 Nov.
