Huddersfield Town fans are being urged to drive their club anthem into the charts.

The band RedStar release their version of “Smile Awhile” on Saturday – the day Town host Championship leaders Burnley at the John Smith’s Stadium.

And band members will be at the Stadium prior to kick off to launch the new disc.

They will be signing limited edition copies in the Stadium Superstore from 2pm.

And later in the day the band – who will be appearing live on Radio Leeds on Saturday morning – will chat with fans about the song in the Stadium hospitality lounge after the game.

RedStar have initially produced 5,000 copies of the song and hope that it will be snapped up by fans.

The song will also be available to download via iTunes and a Facebook page has been set up to encourage supporters to get involved.

The rocking makeover of the 1920s classic Town tune is set to bring a smile to the faces of fans – and children across Huddersfield.

And the new version by indie band RedStar is expected to raise up to £15,000 for the Huddersfield Town Foundation.

The Huddersfield-based band filmed a video to launch the song at Town’s Canalside complex and at the Stadium.

Copies of Smile Awhile, backed with previously released RedStar singles, ‘Low Down Dirty Frenzy’ and ‘Devil May Cry’, will be available from the Huddersfield Town shop, while downloads will be available from www.redstar-uk.co.uk

All profits will go to the Huddersfield Town Foundation, best known for its school breakfast clubs which help children in the Huddersfield area.

RedStar singer and lifelong Town fan Will Bloy said: “Me and Joe (Leadbeater, keyboards) have been Town fans since we were kids. It’s a song we’ve known for a long time.

“There’s been a punk and a folk version of the song but in my humble opinion this is the best version.”
