Mr & Mrs Smith album

V V Brown, Jo Wood, Dylan Jones and Russ (Cuban Brothers) are among those revealing their most seductive tunes on a new album from boutique travel experts, Mr & Mrs Smith, which will raise funds for our work with homeless and badly housed people.

Over 20% of the profit from every CD sold will go to Shelter. Featured on the album are:

  • Marc Almond - That Dress (exclusive track) - chosen by Roland Mouret (fashion designer)
  • Sufjan Stevens - To Be Alone With You - chosen by Lauren Laverne (DJ/broadcaster)
  • Television - Marquee Moon - chosen by Natasha Law (artist)
  • The dø - On My Shoulders - chosen by Tom Aikens (chef)
  • Neon Neon - I Lust U - chosen by James Lohan (founder of Mr & Mrs Smith)
  • Jenny Lewis - Black Sand - chosen by Tamara Salman (creative director Liberty)
  • Love - Alone Again Or - chosen by Howard Marks (author and bon vivant)
  • Terry Callier - Dancing Girl - chosen by Tiffanie Darke (editor Sunday Times Style)

James Lohan, founder of Mr & Mrs Smith, said; ‘After our ‘Something for the Weekend’ music series came to an end, we wanted to create a new collection of compilations with a similarly eclectic track list, but through a more diverse and imaginative selection process. And the fact we can make a contribution to Shelter is close to all our hearts.'

Shelter Director of Fundraising, Louise Parkes, said 'With a playlist this enticing, how could we say no to working with Mr & Mrs Smith? And the best bit is that each CD sold will be helping raise much-needed funds for Shelter’s work with homeless and badly housed people. I urge you to buy it!'
