Tyson Fury’s debut solo single will raise money for men’s mental health charities.
The two-time heavyweight champion has recorded a cover of Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline,” and Tyson’s single, due out Nov. 11, will raise money for talk clubs.
Tyson, who has previously spoken out about his mental health struggles, explains: Mental health struggles, especially since the comeback.
“It’s been widely in print about my ups and downs, my ups and downs, so I’ve been trying to keep talking about it as much as I can and trying to shatter the stigma.”
Tyson, 34, has sung songs like “American Pie” and “Walking in Memphis” after his most famous matches.
Senior Vice President of Rhino Records UK, Myn Jazeel, also enjoys the experience of working with the sporting icon.
“We are incredibly honored to work with a true global sports legend and help fulfill Tyson’s desire to continue raising awareness about mental health issues,” Min said.
“Tyson has masterfully recorded this classic, with the voice and charisma that justifies it.”
Talk Club co-founders Ben Akers and Gavin Thorpe are similarly thrilled to be working with Tyson.
They said: “Men see themselves in Tyson, so when he speaks (or sings), they listen. Partnering with Tyson on something that would improve the… would save lives.”
