Wales' France-bound squad have linked up with the Manic Street Preachers for an official Euro 2016 song.

The song, entitled 'Together Stronger (C'mon Wales)', will be released close to the tournament on May 20 with all profits going to the Princes Gate Trust and Tenovus Cancer Care.

"It was fantastic to be involved with such an iconic Welsh band," manager Chris Coleman told the official Football Association of Wales website.

"The Manic Street Preachers have been passionate Welsh football supporters and all the lads enjoyed the experience and joined in."

The song's release coincides with the Manic Street Preacher's 20th Anniversary re-issue of their hugely successful fourth album 'Everything Must Go'.

The Manic Street Preachers, a three-piece rock band from Blackwood in Gwent, have sold more than 10 million albums worldwide over the last three decades.

Wales have friendlies against Northern Ireland in Cardiff and the Ukraine in Kiev this week in the build-up to Euro 2016, their first appearance at a major tournament for 58 years.
