Robert Plant, Kindness, Tinariwen Contribute New Tracks To Charity Album For Refugees

The British Red Cross are putting together a compilation album called The Long Road to draw attention to the experiences of refugees and asylum seekers, and have announced that Robert Plant, Kindness, and Tinariwen have recorded new and exclusive tracks for the release. Plant’s contribution is a cover of Elbow’s “The Blanket Of Night, while Kindess’ contribution was inspired by Syrian refugee Ayman Hinh. “We have a worldwide international catastrophe — talking about it is one thing, doing something about it is another,” Plant said in a statement. “The position we are in, it’s paramount we all do our best one way or another to help.” He also recorded a video discussing his involvement, which you can watch below.

The album will be released on 3/4/16 — you can pre-order it here.
