Pearl Jam, R.E.M. and many more feature on a new limited-version compilation album that benefits abortion access.
Good Music to Ensure Safe Abortion Access to All, an exclusive to Bandcamp, drops on Friday, October 7, for 24 hours only, according to Billboard.
In addition to Pearl Jam and R.E.M, the mammoth 49-track collection features previously unreleased contributions from the likes of Amanda Shires and Jason Isbell, Death Cab for Cutie, Tegan and Sara, Fleet Foxes, Grouplove, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Mac DeMarco, Maya Hawke, The Regrettes, Soccer Mommy and Wet Leg.
Proceeds from the album will be split between The Brigid Alliance, a service that provides people seeking an abortion with travel, lodging, food, childcare and other logistical support, and the Abortion Care Network through its partnership with the NOISE FOR NOW initiative.
“Every person faced with the choice to keep a pregnancy or not should have access to a safe and legal abortion should they choose one. Their body, their choice,” Tegan and Sara said in a statement.
Abortion Care Network communications director Jay Thibodeau noted, “Donating to keep clinics open in every state makes a huge difference to those who need care . It also matters that people who have, provide and support abortion know that they are not alone: most people in the U.S. support the right to abortion, and we are less alone when we can see and join unified, unapologetic calls to liberate abortion.”
