Burt BacharachRod Stewart, Dionne Warwick and James Taylor have teamed up with celebrated crooner Steve Tyrell for a tribute to songwriters Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Tyrell, who has a long history with Bacharach and David, has recorded an album of their tunes - and his famous pals feature on the classic "What the World Needs Now."

The track will appear on Tyrell's Back to Bacharach, which is released in June and also features collaborations with Patti Austin and Bacharach himself.

The all-star recording is for a worthy cause - all proceeds will go to the National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance (NCCRA) in remembrance of Tyrell's wife Stephanie, who lost her battle with colon cancer in 2003, and anchorwoman Katie Couric's late husband Jay Monahan.

Tyrell began his career in music by helping to co-ordinate Bacharach and David's songs for films like Alfie and Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid.
