Phoebe Bridgers, Hayley Williams, Angel Olsen, more record covers for charity

'Good Music To Avert The Collapse Of American Democracy' drops on Friday

Phoebe Bridgers, Hayley Williams, Angel Olsen, R.E.M., Matt Berninger, and more have shared previously unreleased covers of artists for the Good Music To Avert The Collapse Of American Democracy compilation, which is set for release this Friday.

The 40-track collection features an unearthed Beverly Glenn Copeland song from 1977, Williams covering Broadcast, tracks from My Morning Jacket, Death Cab For Cutie, Courtney Barnett, Best Coast, and a collaboration with Ben Gibbard and Tycho. The set was produced by author Dave Eggers.
 


“It’s going to come down to bringing out and protecting the vote this fall, so the work Fair Fight does is crucial,” Eggers says. “Jordan [Kurland] and I figured a painless way to raise some money would be to ask musicians to donate unreleased tracks, people pay a few bucks for them, and maybe we can edge toward a functioning democracy again.”

Net proceeds from the previously unheard tracks will go toward voting rights organization Fair Fights.
