    Singer/songwriter Robert Schwartzman, best known as front man for critically acclaimed rock band Rooney and for being the brother of actor Jason Schwartzman, will independently release his solo debut, Double Capricorn, on Oct. 25. But wait, there's more!

    All album, licensing and touring revenue will benefit the Tibetan Healing Fund, a not-for-profit humanitarian organization established to improve primary healthcare and education for rural Tibetan women and children in the Tibetan regions of P.R. China. Fans can pre-order their copy of Double Capricorn through RobertSchwartzman.com, where the album will be available as either a digital download or a physical copy. Physical copies will be available exclusively through the website and will not be available in stores.

    "It brings me so much happiness to take something I love to do, write and record music, and use that music for an important cause like the Tibetan Healing Fund. I'm excited to perform these new songs and share them with everybody," said Schwartzman in a statement.
