Ronnie Wood, Sinead O'Connor, Pink Floyd's Nick Mason, iconic producer Brian Eno, vocalist Imelda May and Peaky Blinders actor Cillian Murphy have collaborated on a charity EP 'One More Yard' released by Evamore records, to mark the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day.

'One More Yard' is inspired by around 90 letters home from young Irish soldier Lieutenant Michael Thomas Wall, who was killed at Flanders during the conflict, which ran from 1914-1918. It also takes words from other soldiers letters which used the phrase.

Sinead O'Connor sings the lead vocals, with Ronnie on lead guitar, Nick Mason on drums and Imelda May singing backing vocals. John Reynolds has produced the EP.

The EP also features a prologue section, set to haunting instrumentation by Brian Eno, with Cillian Murphy reading extracts from the letters Lt Thomas, from the Royal Irish Regiment, sent to his mother at home in Dublin.

All proceeds from the EP and the forthcoming album of songs will go towards the Cancer Awareness Trust, which will provide expert clinical advice and guidance to cancer patients around the world, created by leading scientific entrepreneur Professor Sir Chris Evans.

Ronnie said today 'I love the track One More Yard a sad true story set to a haunting melody. It was a pleasure playing on it. I hope everyone gets behind this great initiative and there will be more news soon.'

The EP 'One More Yard', mastered by Real World, will be available on all music platforms on November 2, with the website for the Cancer Awareness Trust launching on the same day at
