The UK is facing one of its biggest chart showdowns of all-time with music legend Engelbert Humperdinck in battle again metal icons Iron Maiden for the number one spot on the English chart next week.

Engelbert Humperdinck’s collaboration with The Peace Collective ‘All Together Now’ is a charity song raising funds for the Red Cross/Red Crescent organisation to continue their humanitarian work.

The Peace Collective is an all-star gathering with Engelbert Humperdinck joined by Clean Bandit, Gorgon City, Suggs, Mick Jones, David Gray, Julian Lennon, The Proclaimers, Gabrielle, Jah Wobble, Leo Sayer, John Power and Holly Johnson.

The Iron Maiden campaign is purely to stick it up Simon Cowell. There slogan is “Up the Irons! Up the charts! Up yer arse Cowell!”.

Peter Hooton of The Farm is the composer of ‘All Together Now’. He told Officialcharts.com “First and foremost we wanted to make a record that would stand the test of time but obviously to challenge for the Official Christmas Number 1 would be a fantastic. We are definitely the underdogs as we have no marketing budget as such and are relying upon goodwill and favours from some brilliant people in the music industry and football. I think it would be a symbolic Number 1 promoting peace and commemorating the extraordinary events of 1914 when there was a brief period of humanity during the horrors of warfare.”

The wildcard for number one next week is last nights X-Factor winner Ben Haenow. His single ‘Something I Need’ is the Cowell creation the Iron Maiden campaign is out to block.
