Our First 100 Days is a charity project that will release one new song per day for the first 100 days of Donald Trump’s presidency. Artists such as Angel Olsen, Mitski, Toro Y Moi, the Mountain Goats, How To Dress Well, PWR BTTM, Strand Of Oaks, the Range, S. Carey, Will Oldham, Jens Lekman, Minus The Bear, and many more are all contributing to the project. The compilation is available to pre-order now, and the first song will be released on Inauguration Day (1/20). Proceeds from the compilation will go towards a number of different charities, including The People’s Climate Movement, All Above All, Cosecha, Southerners On New Ground, Hoosier Action, and Revolutions Per Minute.
Many of us woke up the morning after the election in a state of shock. Everything was different. We knew that we had to do something, and we are incredibly proud of what we are pulling together with Our First 100 Days. Not only is it a collection of great music, it is the music community coming together, supporting many important organizations who will be the first line of defense against the policies of the new administration. We hope that people not only love the music and discover some new things with this collection, but they see it as an easy way to make a contribution to a cross section of organizations that need the support right now.
