The Mighty Goodfellas' new holiday single, A Feel Good Christmas, is intended to help raise awareness of Wells Bring Hope, a non-profit that helps provide clean water sources in Niger, Africa. The band includes Pink Floyd alumnus Scott Page and The Orb's Tim Bran, who worked with David Gilmour on their 2010 collaboration, Metallic Spheres.
The band's press release states that "in 2020, a group of friends decided to create a feel good Christmas tune to share with the world - and to help bring clean water, in partnership with Wells Bring Hope, to the poorest country in Africa."
A Facebook post describes the men as "a group of friends from METAL International,"which is "a brotherhood of diverse Media, Entertainment, Technology, Artistry, and Leadership" individuals who share a "passion for personal growth, intellectual challenge, and social transformation."
This group, "spanning several cities and several countries, worked through the difficulties of our unique times to create this uplifting song and support Wells Bring Hope."
The effort includes a number of instrumentalists and a number of vocalists - "The Mighty Choir."
In addition to Page and Bran, musicians "on the track include James Golding (British recording artist), Chesney Hawkes (British singer-songwriter and #1 international hit selling artist), Kenny Aronoff (Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, Jon Bon Jovi, John Fogerty, Sting), Freddie Ravel (Earth, Wind & Fire, Santana), and Steven Harms (singer - Los Angeles Opera and Disney's Frozen). Between the instrumentalist and vocalists, The Mighty Goodfellas comprise a team of over 40 men.
The track is available for purchase on Bandcamp (which features both a full version and a stripped down, remixed version) and available for streaming on Apple Music and Spotify. You can also see the video for the track on YouTube. For more information, please visit mightygoodfellas.com.
