The foundation EarthPercent, an initiative founded by Brian Eno that provides ways for the music industry to support organizations addressing the climate crisis, is celebrating Earth Day by raising money for charity through new, unreleased, and otherwise previously unheard music donated by over 100 artists. The roster includes Eno, Big Thief, Coldplay, Hot Chip, the Weather Station, Nile Rodgers, and many more. Check out the full list of participating artists and purchase tracks at Bandcamp.
Funds raised by the new releases, which will be available for the next three weeks only via Bandcamp, will go toward EarthPercent-supported initiatives in the form of grants later this year. The foundation’s areas of work include greening the music industry, energy transition, climate justice, legal and policy change, and restoring, conserving, and protecting nature.
