U.K. alt-rock band Arctic Monkeys has partnered with British charity Oxfam for the release of its next single "Crying Lightning."

A limited-edition 7-inch version of the Josh Homme-produced track goes on sale throughout Oxfam's nationwide network of 700 charity shops Aug. 17). A limited number of independent record shops will also stock the 7-inch version of "Crying Lightning."

Proceeds from the Oxfam sales will go towards continuing the charity's famine relief work around the world. "Crying Lightning" is the first single to be lifted from Arctic Monkey's third Domino Records studio album "Humbug," which debuts Aug. 24 in the United Kingdom and one day later in the United States.

The single release will be backed by a cover of the Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' "Red Right Hand" and will also come with a download code allowing fans to get an MP3 version of the songs for free. Each vinyl record will cost £2.99 ($5).
According to the charity organisation, more than 600 Oxfam shops across the country stock second-hand music and sell around 1.8 million CD and records every year, generating approximately £6 million ($10.2 million) worth of sales every year.

Domino founder Laurence Bell said in a statement: “Oxfam is a Great British institution and it's a delight to be working together on this project.”

Many of the Oxfam shops, Bell added, are “in high streets that once housed a record shop, so as well as raising some money for a great cause we are able to get vinyl back onto more of the nation’s high streets, which feels good. We encourage all customers to bring something of value to donate to the store when they come down to buy the new Arctic Monkeys single.”
