In a desperate bid to raise funds for a new life in Ecuador, Julian Assange is alleged to be working on an album of cover versions
Wiki-Leaks founder Julian Assange has been making good use of his enforced exile within the Ecuadorian Embassy.
The under-siege 41 year old has not been idle, as he has taken advantage of his break from revealing State secrets to release an album of cover versions of his favourite songs.
Speaking to us through a keyhole earlier today, he told us, "It's long been an ambition of mine to lay down some tracks, and thanks to the recording studio here in the embassy, I've managed to do that. I think both my supporters and detractors will find something that makes the earth move for them. It's just a shame those tasty birds in Abba aren't recording anymore, I'd have liked to have got into bed with them for this."
The track list of the soon to be released (unlike it's creator) CD is:
1) Girls Just Wanna (Have Fun)
2) Sexual Healing
3) Please Release Me
4) Wake Me Up (Before You Have Another Go-Go)
5) I Hear You Knocking (But You Can't Come In)
6) Sweet Dreams (Aren't Made Of This)
7) Strangers In The Night
8)You've Lost That Loving Feeling
9) All You Need Is Love
10) We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off (To Have A Good Time)
11) Sex Crime (1984)
He hopes that by becoming an international recording star he'll be excused his alleged 'indiscretions'..."
Rumours that he was offered a role in a buddy movie “The Road to Ecuador” with Garry Glitter have been denied.
