U2 are one of the major acts that have come together to donate songs to a charity album to benefit the millions affected by the devastation wreaked by Typhoon Haiyan in The Philippines.

Dozens of leading artists, including Eminem, Beyonce, Madonna and One Direction, have contributed singles to the 39-track benefit album, Songs for the Philippines.

U2 have gifted the track In A Little While from their 2000 album All That You Can't Leave Behind to the charity record. Artists, labels and managers have agreed to donate proceeds from its release to the Philippine Red Cross. The compilation is also streaming as an iTunes Radio 'First Play' release, for which all proceeds will benefit relief efforts in the typhoon-struck country.
