The David Lynch Foundation 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, TheMusic That Changes the World is 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, and includes a previously unreleased bonus track from Sean Lennon's "Ghost of the Saber Tooth Tiger," as well as an exclusive new release from Julio Iglesias Jr. via digital download.
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. Artists include Donovan, Alanis Morissette, Tom Waits, Amanda Palmer, Ben Folds, Iggy Pop, Maroon 5, Neon Trees, Dave Stewart, and more.
"It is my great pleasure to announce the vinyl release of Music That Changes the World on Record Store Day," said 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."
The box set features a gorgeous 42-page color book with an introduction by David Lynch. The book is illustrated by Romio Shrestha, who has been called "a modern master of the Indo-Nepali-Tibetan Buddhist traditions of enlightenment art," and New Jersey artist Davel Hamue. All songs were re-mastered for this project by Gavin Lurssen and Reuben Cohen from Lurssen Mastering. Cohen is a Latin Grammy award-winner who has mastered such artists as Snoop Dogg, Sean Kingston, Common, The Cranberries, Dev, Rob Zombie, and Ingrid Michaelson.
It 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 will be available in stores as part of Record Store Day, on Saturday, April 21, 2012. Since it's start in 2008, Record Store Day has been instrumental across the globe in bringing millions of fans to record stores on one day each year. Only 2,500 units will be released.
