Now, thirty years later, the two founders have officially announced Band Aid 30, which will feature Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, the rock band Foals, and U2 frontman Bono singing on a new version of "Do They Know It's Christmas?"

In a press conference held Monday in London, Ure and Geldof explained that the proceeds from the new single will benefit the fight against Ebola in West Africa, and that the lyrics will be revised to reflect the new cause, according to the BBC.

Bono appeared on the original 1984 recording, as well as on Band Aid 20 in 2004. The original version also featured Sting, David Bowie and Paul McCartney.

Band Aid 30 will record their version of "Do They Know It's Christmas" Saturday, November 15 in London. The single will be made available as a digital download in the U.K. next Monday, while a physical release will debut three weeks later.
