AN album sold to raise money for victims of the conflict in Kosovo is set to be launched in Islington tonight (Thursday).

The gig, which features Badly Drawn Boy, Liam Frost and the Travelling Band, celebrates the release of the CD Ten and takes place on April 7 at the Union Chapel, Compton Avenue, Islington.

All proceeds from the concert and the album sales will go to the Manchester Aid for Kosovo charity.

Ten contains music from Elbow and Doves and is released ten years after MAK’s first fund-raising record, Cohesion.

Peter Stapleton, project manager for the Union Chapel, said: “It’s going to be a fantastic event with a world class selection of artists, and it’s for a great cause as well.

“We really try to support other charities, being one ourselves and we always so the best we can to help.

Next month, the union chapel welcomes Islington songstress Paloma Faith.

The singer, who attended Islington Green School, in Prebend Street, and completed her A-levels at City and Islington College, in Holloway, will perform at the chapel on May 5.
