Adele, Pearl Jam, Dolly Parton, and a variety of other stars are all contributing to a new tribute album to singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile titled Cover Stories. Former president of the United States, Barack Obama wrote the record's foreword. Also appearing on the album will be My Morning Jacket's Jim James, Kris Kristofferson, Indigo Girls, The Avett Brothers, and Old Crow Medicine Show.
All proceeds from the album will go to War Child UK, which "Protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children in war." Each song appearing on Cover Stories, is a reinterpretation from tracks that originally appeared on Carlile's 2007 album, The Story.
Carlile said in a statement, "This is a David and Goliath story. Since becoming a mother, the reality of a child's beautiful life being torn apart by war felt like too big of a problem for me. So I asked my heroes and friends to help me launch a rock at the giant that is our refugee crisis and help in the only way we know how: through the power of music."
Barack Obama said in a statement about Carlile, "As an artist, Brandi Carlile is using her talent on behalf of the most vulnerable among us, children living in areas of conflict. She reminds us that, together, we can build for our children a more just, peaceful world."
