EAGLES OF DEATH METAL have announced the release of the third round of the PLAY IT FORWARD campaign that bowed DECEMBER 18th last year with its first helping of covers of “I Love You All The Time” from the band’s current album"Zipper Down."
Contributions from none other than ELTON JOHN as well as a special collaboration from THE STROKES’ FABRIZIO MORETTI and NICK VALENSI featuring BECK highlight the latest additions, along with covers from ARCAVES, CECILY JONES, CHASED BY KARMA, DUKES OF NEW YORK, FASTER PUSSYCAT, JENN BOSTIC, LOOSE JOINTS & MYSTIFIED, THE MUFFIN HEADS, NEW TOWN KINGS, RAD PITT, SLUGWORTH, STOPPOK (FEAT. REGGIE WORTHY, WALLY INGRAM & SEBEL) and SUGARFOOT.
As before, the band pledges to donate 100% of its publishing income from every cover sold to THE SWEET STUFF FOUNDATION, the non-profit organization founded in 2013 by EODM co-founder JOSH HOMME to provide assistance to musicians and their families in times of need, as well as musical education and gear for the next generation. Participating artists were once again asked to donate the money generated from sales of the song to the charity. iTUNES, PRIME MUSIC, SPOTIFY and TUNECORE DIGITAL DISTRIBUTION are also donating proceeds in participating markets.
Those wishing to donate should go to playitforwardeodm.com/.
With cooperation from FONDATION DE FRANCE and FENVAC, PLAY IT FORWARD EODM campaign donations to SWEET STUFF will aid the surviving family members of those killed in the NOVEMBER 13th PARIS attacks -- as well as the family of slain EODM crew member NICK ALEXANDER
