Musicians team up for Sacha Baron Cohen's cheeky soundtrack

Wednesday April 1, 2009

Bono and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin are two of the big stars who have signed up to collaborate on a tongue-in-cheek track for Sasha Baron Cohen's latest cinematic offering, Bruno.
Titled Doves Of Peace, the song, which is already in the process of being recorded in the famous Abbey Road studios, features some provocative as well as humorous lyrics, including: "For people of Africa who live in hell/ They will never wear Chanel". 
"Chris Martin was in stitches throughout the recording and only just managed to get his lines out," a source revealed to the Daily Mirror

Sting and the Village People are also lending their vocals to the soundtrack for the movie, which is a 'mockumentary' style film featuring 37-year-old Sacha's camp, fashion-loving alter ego Bruno, pictured. The former Police frontman and the Eighties wondergroup are due in the studio at the weekend to record their contributions. Madonna and Elton John are also in the frame. 
Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America For The Purpose Of Making Heterosexual Male is scheduled for release in the UK in July.
