Music stars have joined together to release a collection of live songs recorded at Glastonbury Festival to raise money for Oxfam and the charity's work with refugees across the world.

The artists include Coldplay - whose lead singer Chris Martin comes from near Exeter and Teignmouth band Muse.

The other bands and singers featured are

  • Foals
  • Editors
  • Laura Mvula
  • Madness
  • Years & Years
  • New Order
  • Jess Glynne,
  • Jack Garratt
  • The Last Shadow Puppets

The record is being dedicated to the memory of Jo Cox, with proceeds going to the Jo Cox Fund - an organisation set up following the death of the MP and former Oxfam campaigner on 16 June.

Laura Mvula said: "I'm donating a track because we need to do more about this refugee situation. The world needs to change."

Oxfam said more than 65 million people have been forced to flee their homes as a result of the ongoing conflicts in several nations. The charity has reached out to help those in need in countries including Syria, Lebanon and Jordan.

  • Oxfam Presents: Stand as One - Live at Glastonbury 2016 is available to buy on Friday 5 August.
