In support of the current disaster in Haiti, three music superstars are coming together to record a new track as a plea for Haiti relief funds.

In a series of tweets over the weekend, producer Swizz Beatz revealed that he, Jay-Z and U2‘s Bono have laid down a record about the tragedy in Haiti. As of press time, its title was unknown.

“ME, BONO, HOVA, HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT HAITI,” Swizzy wrote on his Twitter page (@THEREALSWIZZZ). “STAY TUNNED I TOLD YOU I WAS WORKING ON SOMETHING AMAZING FOR HAITI THEY NEED US!!!!!!”

According to U2 guitarist Edge, Swizz called Bono about doing the collaboration, and the group came together immediately to set it in motion.

“Last night we wrote a song,” Edge said in a follow-up tweet. “Bono got a call from a producer, Swizz. He and Jay-Z wanted to do something for Haiti. So, Bono came up with the phrase on the phone, and last night we were here, we wrote a song – finished, recorded and send [sic] back to them. So, that might be the next thing you hear from us!”

Aside from the announcement, not much is known about the content and style of the song, or when it will be released.
