Teen Cancer America will release an exclusive recording of Roger Daltrey performing the 1980 Pete Townshend solo classic “Let My Love Open The Door.”

Apple, Roger Daltrey, and Republic Records will donate their respective proceeds in the United States to the Teen Cancer America and its work to increase targeted care and specialized treatment facilities for teens and young adults with cancer. The single is available exclusively on iTunes. Listen and download here.

The commercials, produced by First Citizens, began airing during the holidays in the bank’s North Carolina and South Carolina markets. Both the song and television ad can be found at
