Wyclef Records Charity Single With Bono, Preps For Woodstock

Wyclef Jean recently hooked up with U2 frontman Bono to record a track called, "New Day," which will benefit Net Aid and the Wyclef Jean Foundation.

The Net Aid organization is working to curb extreme poverty in third world and other underdeveloped countries, and the group is hoping to organize a series of benefit concerts later this year. Wyclef Jean's Foundation is the nonprofit group that helps fund various youth programs in both the U.S. and Haiti.

Although the song has yet to find a record label home, Wyclef's camp says it hopes the song can be released as early as late-August. As far as a new solo album for Wyclef, he says it has yet to be recorded, but claims it's all completed in his head.

Meanwhile, Jean is gearing up to play Woodstock '99 later this month, where he will be joined onstage by his brother and sister, the duo known as Melky Sedeck.

Woodstock '99 kicks off on July 23 in Rome, New York, and tickets are still on sale.
