Did Adele Snub Band Aid's 2014 'Do They Know It's Christmas'?


Did Adele Snub Band Aid's 2014 'Do They Know It's Christmas'? - The 30th anniversary of the 1984 holiday charity classic “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” is here, and the charitable folks at Band Aid decided to celebrate with an anti-Ebola edition. It’s a virtual who’s-who of big names in British and Irish music — One Direction, Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding, with Bono back three decades later — but one obvious U.K. person is nowhere to be found.

Project organizer Bob Geldof — who co-wrote the original back in 1984 — said Adele ignored his pleas to appear on the song, according to a Guardian report. Billboard reached out to Adele’s team for comment on this report.


The 30th anniversary of the 1984 holiday charity classic “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” is here, and the charitable folks at Band Aid decided to celebrate with an anti-Ebola edition. It’s a virtual who’s-who of big names in British and Irish music — One Direction, Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding, with Bono back three decades later — but one obvious U.K. person is nowhere to be found.

Project organizer Bob Geldof — who co-wrote the original back in 1984 — said Adele ignored his pleas to appear on the song, according to a Guardian report. Billboard reached out to Adele’s team for comment on this report.

The singer was included in early reports amongst other confirmed collaborators. However, The Guardian says Adele’s team maintains she should have never been included on the list, and that she chose to support the cause “with a donation.”

Geldof told The Sun, “Some people just don’t want to do it… Adele is doing nothing, she’s not answering the phone… she’s not writing. She’s not recording. She doesn’t want to be bothered by anyone. She won’t pick up the phone to her manager. She’s bringing up a family, you know.”

Back on Oct. 9, Adele’s U.K. label XL Recordings noted that the singer’s highly anticipated third studio album will not be arriving in 2014.

Check out the final version of the Adele-less song, which debuted during The X Factor in the U.K. on Sunday (Nov. 16).
