We’ve already heard songs from Four Tet and Rustie for the upcoming charity/concept album BOATS from Everything Is New and now YACHT is throwing its hat into the ring. All of the songs from the album sample the voices of children from southeast India’s Light Of Love Children’s Home and “Icarus Complex” uses these vocals to craft a tune that bounces around in typical Jona Bechtolt art-rock fashion. The album will also feature contributions from No Age, Bear In Heaven, Owen Pallett, and Xiu Xiu’s Jamie Stewart. Listen to YACHT’s effort below.

The Everything Is New project’s double album was conceived by Scotland-based arts collective Transgressive North and will be out on 1/20. Proceeds go to Love In Action, which provides aid to children throughout southeast Asia.
