For Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week this year, veteran canary balladeer Tommy McAnairey is taking the unusual step of releasing a single in order to ‘spread the word’ about carbon monoxide. McAnairey has said he is is ‘goin all out’ to spread the word this year because ‘there are still folks who just don’t get it wit carbon monoxide’. He hopes to get the single to no.1.

The single, ‘Carbon Monoxide Is Lethal As Hell’, features a rousing, catchy chorus that will will stay in your head all day. More importantly, it’s packed with potentially life-saving tips about preventing the poisonous gas, and features such memorable lines as ‘Always keep your boiler in / Excellent condition / By gettin it serviced once a year be a registered technician.’

‘Carbon Monoxide Is Lethal As Hell’ will be released with support from TV, radio, print and online advertising. The single will be promoted on radio stations nationwide. There will also be a YouTube video and an extensive social campaign on Twitter ‘manned’ by Tommy himself.

‘Carbon Monoxide Is Lethal As Hell’ will be available on iTunes, Google Music and Amazon from Friday September 18th at a cost of 99c. Any profits will go to the charity Age Action, to help them provide older people with crucial carbon monoxide alarms.
