Nick Clegg’s debut single goes live on iTunes

As at 9pm tonight, Nick Clegg’s debut single “Nick Clegg says I’m sorry (the Autotune remix)” has gone live on iTunes. It will go live on Amazon and other outlets in the next 24 hours. The Poke has the full story of their success with this brilliant adaptation of the DPM’s apology by Alex Ross.

You can download the single at iTunes here.

All proceeds from the sale of the single will go the Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, at the request of Nick Clegg, via Twitter.

    A certain Oscar Wilde about irony springs to mind!

  • Don’t worry about this apology going viral as a song – it’s probably the best outcome of the rather well lit but over rehearsed original and can only do good. Think of the media reaction ahead of the T.V. broadcast next week without the auto tune treatment: “po-faced”, “sanctimonious” yes, but these two (already published by the usual sources) are now dead and buried as far as Nick is concerned. His only worry is whether or not he’s going to be No.1 on the iTunes chart at the start of Conference. For once the LibDems are ahead of the game….but no thanks to the media ream who had a chance to advise sharing the proceeds with the victims’ families of the Hillsborough tragedy. A masterstroke missed, and one that in no way would have been seen as cynical.

    Why just iTunes? 🙁
    Not all of us like shopping with Apple.

  • “For once the LibDems are ahead of the game….but no thanks to the media ream who had a chance to advise sharing the proceeds with the victims’ families of the Hillsborough tragedy.”

    I’ve been critical of Nick but if he’s going to get attacked over asking for the proceeds of this (which he hasn’t actually had anything to do with ) do go to a particular charity then he really probably cannot do anything right!

  • @ Hywel
    But the Hillsborough suggestion would have been good publicity and the money would have included Sheffield whilst being spread beyond it. Cynical, maybe, but I’m quite obviously not attacking Nick personally as it could have been down to his advisers or those I mentioned.

    Hi Daniel, I’ll endeavour to add others links as they come up. Itunes was first to do it.

  • If he’d done that no doubt somebody else would have been along saying what a cynical move it was to ask for the proceeds to go to the cause which was dominating this weeks news.

    When politicians approach every moment thinking “how do I spin this to make me look as good as possible you end up with Tony Blair on the steps on number 10 sipping coffee from a mug with his first three children’s photographs on (or Harold Wilson’s pipe for those with longer memories).
