Songs for Japan

A compilation album called Songs for Japan has just been released to benefit the ongoing disaster relief efforts in the earthquake and tsunami hit areas of Japan. Following on from my earlier post the stars and songs that appear on the album have been released. Lady Gaga, Eminem, Beyonce, Madonna, The Kings of Leon and Katy Perry joined a list of already announced artists like Justin Bieber, Rihanna and U2. All in all, 38 artists lent songs to the album. I have provided a detailed list below of the artists and songs. All acts appearing on Songs for Japan and their labels and music publishers have waived their royalties to ensure the Japanese Red Cross Society (JRCS) receives as much support as possible. The JRCS will use the funds from the album to support its ongoing relief efforts and for eventual recovery assistance to the areas hardest hit by the disaster.

The album is available for purchase as either an Audio CD or MP3 Download. Proceeds from the sale of Songs for Japan will benefit the Japanese Red Cross Society.
