Green Day are to release a new download single to raise money for charity.

Their cover of the John Lennon classic ‘Working Class Hero’ will be released exclusively through iTunes tomorrow (May 1).

All the proceeds will go towards helping those people blighted by the troubles in Darfur.

The track merges Lennon’s original vocals with Billie Joe’s contribution and also will appear on the forthcoming Amnesty International album ‘Instant Karma: The Campaign To Save Darfur’ released on May 25

As previously reported, also appearing on the album are REM, Snow Patrol, Aerosmith, U2 and Black Eyed Peas.
