Reuters reports that Irish rockers U2 and pop stars Rihanna and Justin Bieber are among the artists confirmed to be featured on a digital-only album being rushed out by Universal Music to raise funds for Japanese quake and tsunami victims. Uni is pushing the record out at the end of the week, even though the lineup has yet to be finalized since time is of the essence. Proceeds will go to the Japanese Red Cross, a spokesman for the group said on Monday.
"We are doing it only digitally because it is faster, and this will be a worldwide release. The plan is to have it available later this week," the rep said.
The 38-song digital album is available from iTunes. Would you purchase this digital set to benefit Japanese relief efforts?
