David Byrne has just released 4 live tracks to benefit Amnesty International. Check them out below and download them here for a mere $3.99 that all goes to Amnesty.
I know about this because I got another email from DB this morning:
Some time ago Amnesty International asked if I might do “something” for that organization this year- (in previous years I had done one of my tour dates as a benefit for them). Amnesty has such an amazing and consistent track record of speaking out and helping to illuminate courageous people who might otherwise not be heard from so the answer was “yes.”
It was decided to record some songs from my current tour for them to be sold as a download with the proceeds going to Amnesty. As there are no physical costs with digital distribution this means more of the sales percentage actually goes to where it’s supposed to. So, thank you for supporting a great organization and I hope you like these recordings too.
Still loving that name in my inbox…
