Celebs cover The Beach Boy classis 'God Only Knows'

Could this be the most star-studded charity single ever?

It’s that time of the year when the dark evenings are creeping in and sleigh bells are playing faintly in the background but to cheer you up we give you what might be the most star-studded chairty single we’ve ever seen.

Stevie Wonder, One Direction, Emeli Sande, Lorde, Kylie Minogue, Pharrell Williams, Chris Martin, Florence Welch, Brian May, Paloma Faith, Sam Smith, Brian Wilson, Baaba Maa and Elton John are among the superstars that appear in The Beach Boy’s cover ‘God Only Knows’.

If that isn’t a star-studded list we don’t know what is?!

From Kylie floating in a giant bubble, Paloma Faith on a swing in the clouds and Brian May’s guitar solo we can’t fault the single.

The project is reminiscent of the BBC’s 1997 Perfect Day promotion, in which some of the most celebrated artists of the day performed with Lou Reed.

Oh the memories!
