Online advocacy organization Global Citizen and Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons and Communion records have announced that Ellie Goulding, Mumford & Sons, the National, and Kanye West will contribute to Global Citizen’s first-ever compilation album, Metamorphoses. Global Citizen is inviting artists to participate in the album by submitting their words and stories online now through 3/31. Lovett and the participating artists will then curate the most powerful entries and incorporate them into their original songs. The album was conceptualized by Lovett and Global Citizen Co-Founder and CEO Hugh Evans as part of their initiative to get music fans and activists involved with their movement to end poverty by 2030.
The album will feature 12 tracks and is set for release this fall. Additional artists and release details will be announced later this year.
