Put The Green Cape On - Extended version
All proceeds will go to the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (ISPCC).

The cdsingle is out on Universal Ireland (3703342)
The Irish Football team will take on Spain, Croatia and Italy in the first rounds of the EFC in Gdansk and Poznan, Poland.
Update: A week after release Put The Green Cape On enters the Irish charts at #3. At #1 there's another football anthem: The Rocky Road To Poland by various (jurassic) Irish artists. It's also is for charity and stresses that it is the OFFICIAL anthem, but it doesn't have anyone half as exiting as Jedward or any of the other Irish Eurovision stars for that matter.
Planet Jedward was the duo's 2010 debut album including mostly coverversions from the Xfactor shows and featuring the twins two hits Under Pressure (Ice Ice Baby) and All The Small Things.
The forthcoming album (working title: Victory) will be out in August, but Universal Germany wants to cash in while Jedward are still hot and they have now released a new album also titled Planet Jedward. This one includes only a few of the tracks from the 2010 album (like the hits) but mostly new tracks which will also end up on the VictoryCD.
To make things easier, the new Planet CD has the same picture cover as the old one.
