October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and some of the biggest names in music contributed to a new charity single called Boob Spelled Backwards Is Boob.

The #BoobProject, as it has become known, was put together by Mike “No Name” Nelson, a DJ at San Francisco radio station KFOG. Mike, who's wife is currently battling breast cancer, asked artists visiting the station to contribute to the single. The lyrics to Boob Spelled Backwards Is Boob were written by Mike's eight-year-old son.

Take a look at this list partial list of artists lending their voices, guitars and more: Florence + the Machine, Noel Gallagher, Hozier, Michael Franti, Vance Joy, Matt Nathanson, Spandau Ballet, Graham Nash (CSNY), the Grateful Dead and Elle King.

The song is currently available on iTunes, with all proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Visit the #BoobProject website to learn more.
