Jimmy Barnes is generously donating his royalties for 2018 from the Working Class Boy soundtrack to drought relief to assist Australia’s struggling farmers.

“Like so many Australians the media images of farmers in crisis have made my family and me want to do something to help with drought relief,” Jimmy said at Facebook. “There are lots of benefit gigs and other things being discussed right now and we’ll do what we can for those in due course. In the meantime, as an initial gesture, we wanted to let you know that we’ll be donating all of this year’s royalties from the “Working Class Boy” soundtrack to drought relief charities. You can order the album here.

“It’s just a drop in the ocean given the size of the problem but every little bit counts and the folks in the bush need all the help they can get right now. Anyway we just wanted to let you know and if you feel like doing something to help too then that would be great. Thanks. Jimmy, Jane & Family”.

The Working Class Boy soundtrack was compiled for the movie ‘Working Class Boy’, based on Jimmy’s two best-selling books. The movie will premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival on Thursday 16 August with a Q&A with director Mark Joffe and Jimmy Barnes.

Jimmy Barnes: Working Class Boy retraces Jimmy’s earliest steps from Glasgow to growing up in Elizabeth, South Australia. Jimmy reveals the poverty, domestic violence, alcoholism, abuse and neglect he grew up with, the impact on him as a child and the consequences for him as a man.
