If/When the album finally surrenders to the single as the primary product of the music industry, various artists comps- whether tribute albums, charity collections, or soundtracks- will likely continue to haunt the periphery of the industry, like ghosts of the CD age. Worth at most a listen or two, most have a few solid tracks mixed in with failed experiments or dull B-sides, but usually they're panned as driven more by marketing or good intentions than by solid musical ideas
War Child Presents Heroes is a 2009 charity album devoted to the War Child charity's aid efforts in war-stricken areas, such as Iraq, Uganda, Afghanistan and the Democratic Republic of Congo . While initial reports indicated the album would be released on 24 November 2008, on 7 October, it was announced that the release date would be pushed back to February 2009 due to an overwhelming interest from musicians hoping to contribute to the compilation. On 17 December, a release date of 16 February 2009 was announced.

War Child is the seventh studio album by Jethro Tull, released in October 1974. It was released almost a year and a half after the release of A Passion Play. The turmoil over criticism of the previous album surrounded the production of War Child, which obliged the band to do press conferences and explain their plans for the future. The band began recording songs for the album on 7 December 1973, starting with "Ladies"
