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. With a theme of "placing faith in the next generation," the concept of the album is to have music legends select a track from their own canon and nominate an artist from the next generation to create a modern reworking of that song.

War Child album covers are not adorned with heart-rending images of distressed children. The artwork for Heroes, as with Help, was done by the former Stone Roses guitarist John Squire in his familiar Abstract Expressionist style. The 10-track albums include Hot Chip's rendition of Joy Division's "Transmission", The Kooks' take on The Kinks' "Victoria", and Estelle's cover of Stevie Wonder's "Superstition", all from the next War Child LP, 'Heroes', released on Monday.

Features cuts from Beck, Scissor Sisters, Duffy, Hot Chip, The Kooks, Lily Allen with Mick Jones, Franz Ferdinand, The Hold Steady and others.
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
