SHEFFIELD, UK—Rockers with tinnitus will team up on an album to help the British Tinnitus Association raise awareness of tinnitus, a sometimes-tormenting condition that is especially prevalent among musicians.
Coldplay and the Black Eyed Peas are among the internationally popular bands that will perform on the album, which is being produced in partnership with Eddy Temple-Morris, a British DJ, record producer, and TV host.
The album will be called I Am The One In Ten, which alludes to the percentage of tinnitus suffers in the UK. All the groups involved have at least one member with the condition.
The goal is to inspire research into the causes and treatments of tinnitus, as well as to attract investment in that area.
