Pop-rockers of the moment McFly are to release this year’s Children in Need single later this month.

The double A-side single features the upbeat song ‘Do Ya’ from current album ‘RADIO:Active’ alongside a cover of Rod Stewart and the Faces’ seventies hit ‘Stay With Me’ and will be released for download on Sunday 23rd November and in stores on Monday 24th.

The band will perform both songs live on BBC Children in Need night (November 14th) with all profits from the single being donated to the charity.

This year Children in Need is challenging people to “Do Something Different” to help achieve their aim of raising over £30million to help disadvantaged children across the UK.

Tom, singer and guitarist in McFly said: “We’re so honoured to be releasing the official single for Children in Need.

 “We’ve performed several times on the live show in the past and it’s always been an amazing night with a fantastic atmosphere.

 “Hopefully our single can help raise more money than ever for what is such a great cause.”

McFly are no strangers to charity singles – they released number 1 single ‘All About You’ for Comic Relief in 2005 and visited Uganda as part of their work for the campaign which helped to raise £65million to fund projects for deprived people all over the world.
