Montreal nonprofit the Yellow Bird Project has teamed with dozens of artists over the years to make beautifully designed shirts, posters and other one-off visual items for charity. This year they’re going the audio route as well, releasing a compilation set with Andrew Bird, Keaton Henson, Elvis Perkins, Micah P. Hinson, and more covering fellow notable YBP-friendly acts. Proceeds go to various causes, but only when this project gets off the ground via pre-orders here. In the meantime, here’s a promising first taste: Andrew Bird’s stirring bluegrass take on the New Pornographers’ prescient Mass Romantic cut “The Fake Headlines” above.
