Big Wreck covers Sting’s “Russians” to raise money for Ukraine

Ian Thornley and Big Wreck must have been plugged in very early into what was happening along the Ukrainian border Russia. In early January, they recorded a version of Sting’s anti-war anthem, “Russians.” Now that the unthinkable has happened, the band has released the song with 100% of all proceeds going to the UNHRC (A United Nations Refugee Aid Organization) which is working to help refugees.

Listen to the song here. And drop that $1.25 for the track.
