Arsenal's Cech releases single with Queen's Roger Taylor
Petr Cech may be retiring at the end of the season, but the Arsenal goalkeeper has already branched out into the music business.
The Czech legend has lent his esteemed musical talents to a new charity single for which he has teamed up with none other than legendary Queen drummer Roger Taylor.
Cech, himself a keen amateur drummer, announced the imminent release of "That's Football" with Taylor last week.
Watch out Ed Sheeran, Stormzy, & others, there's a new artist in town 😂😂😂🤣🤣. To mark my retirement the legendary Roger Taylor and myself thought it would be fun to do a song to raise money for the wonderful @Willow_Fdn . out next week on Virgin Records. 😂😂 #thatsfootball pic.twitter.com/vDZPSTINyM— Petr Cech (@PetrCech) 3 May 2019
And the duo have now unleashed their magnum opus upon the world. While the lyrical content and Cech's (spoken word) vocal prowess perhaps leave a little to be desired, the whole thing is quite charming, in a soft-rocking kind of way.
With simple yet evocative lyrics ("The pitch, the roar, the crowd, the score!") you'll find yourself signing along, whether you like it or not.
The full song will be available to download on Friday, with all proceeds being donated to The Willow Foundation -- a UK charity set up by former Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson to provide special days out for people with serious illnesses.
