Filter Mag and Urban Outfitters Announce Benefit Compilation

Filter Magazine and Urban Outfitters, who teamed up earlier this year to produce and sell a double CD to raise funds for tsunami relief, have announced a new benefit compilation. This time, the compilation will benefit the American Red Cross, with funds directed toward their Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. Like the tsunami relief collection, Filter Magazine/Urban Outfitters Hurricane Benefit Compilation is a two-disc set. It will include some previously unreleased tracks, including "Mercy" by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and a Tom Waits and the Kronos Quartet song, "Little Drop of Poison" (a version of the song without the Kronos Quartet was on the Shrek 2 soundtrack). Rare songs, remixes, and some album tracks are also included. Artists contributing songs include Death Cab for Cutie, British Sea Power, Sigur Ros, Calexico, Laura Cantrell, and Of Montreal.

The compilation is expected to be available in mid-October both at Urban Outfitters stores and at their website. Supplies will be limited, as only 10,000 compilations will be sold; Filter and Urban Outfitters say they hope to raise $150,000 for the Red Cross.
