BAT OUT OF HELL rocker Meatloaf is joining forces with an unlikely ally to raise awareness of poverty-stricken bankers who may be down to their last mil.
Meatloaf, real name Hilary Clare, will highlight their plight in a new single featuring the legenday songwriter Yoko Ono.
Meat, who goes by the name Loaf, co-wrote the lyrics for the single which goes on sale Monday.
He said: "We should all just give a damn about these poor bankers. They have next to nothing. Imagine trying to live on just a million dollars a year. It's inhumane. If just one person buys this record, I will go to my grave a blessed man."
Yoko said: "Let the world unite in mystic karma and feed the bankers. And I'd just like to say Free John Lennon!"
The hush-hush video for the single has been directed by brothers Ridley and Great Scott.
The charity behind the campaign, 'Bleeding Bankers', said: "We really hope this pricks the public's conscience. Bankers really ARE bleeding. They're having to shop in places like Lidl simply because they can't afford Waitrose. It's a disgrace. We urge everyone, including OAPs, to dig deep and help the bankers fund the lifestyle they truly deserve."
Proceeds of the £7.99 single will go straight to the 'Bleeding Bankers'.
The single, which features rock and pop's finest is titled "Forget the Third World And Let's Help Our Own".
