Simon Cowell definitely doesn't do things by halves and has decided that he's going to rush-release an update of Three Lions song 'Shout' tomorrow, just in time for Sunday's (June 24) quarter-final clash with Italy. Nothing like leaving things til the last minute, eh Simon?
The track is set to feature Dizzee Rascal and comedian James Corden. Rapper Dizzee has said that he hopes the remake will bring the boys better luck. Let's hope so!
The song name-checks new strikers Danny Welbeck and Andy Carroll, winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and boss Roy Hodgson.
Dizzee told The Sun: “We’ve remixed the song to make it sound like we’re gonna win this time.”
"The latest lyrics also feature something that was missing in South Africa — Joleon Lescott’s “high-top”.
Lines in the rap include: “Gerrard and Andy Carroll got the game on lock. No need to fear the other teams, we’re gonna smash the lot" and “2012 the year we show the world what we’ve got.”
None of the celebs involved with the single will line their own pockets from the song because all profits will go to London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital for children, just like in 2010 when the song raised £85,000.
What do you think of the new updated track?
