The David Lynch Foundation has announced plans to release the physical version of Download for Good: Music that Changes the World as a special limited edition box set to celebrate Record Store Day, Saturday April 21, 2012.
Originally released in mid-July 2011 via iTunes as Download for Good: Music that Changes the World, the limited edition box set has been described as ''a wonderfully eclectic, star-studded vinyl music compilation'' benefiting the David Lynch Foundation—a non-profit educational organization founded by iconic filmmaker David Lynch. The compilation has been re-mastered for vinyl.
The box set boasts performances from 34 top musical artists spanning pop, Latin, electric, rock, world, indie, hip-hop, and classical, who have come together to express their support for the foundation and its visionary director.
''It is my great pleasure to announce the vinyl release of Music that Changes the World on Record Store Day,'' said Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Donovan. ''As head of the Musical Wing of The David Lynch Foundation, I wish to thank all the amazing artists who have contributed. From the beginning, when The Beatles and I were writing songs to promote Maharishi's meditation, it was always my dream to bring all the musical fraternity onto one great label to promote true peace. This day has arrived and now the world can know as we knew then, that Change Begins Within.''
Artists include Donovan, Alanis Morissette, Tom Waits, Amanda Palmer, Ben Folds, Maroon 5, Neon Trees, Dave Stewart, and more, including a previously unreleased bonus track from an album by Sean Lennon's ''Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger,'' as well as an exclusive new release from Julio Iglesias, Jr. via digital download.
The box set will also include a digital version of ''Meditation Creativity Peace'', a compelling new documentary film featuring exclusive, candid footage from David Lynch's 16-country tour around the world when he spoke to government leaders, film students, and the press during 2007 and 2008. The box set also features a beautiful 42-page color book with an introduction by Mr Lynch.
The Music that Changes the World limited edition box set will be available in stores as part of Record Store Day, on Saturday, April 21, 2012. Only 2,500 units will be released worldwide, making it an instant collector's item.
