The latest in an illustrious history of musicians coming together for a good cause will feature Kanye West, The National, Mumford and Sons, and Ellie Goulding collaborating on Global Citizen’s crowdsourced album Metamorphoses.
Okay, let’s unpack that sentence. Global Citizen is an international organization committed to ending extreme world poverty by 2030. They’ve decided to team up with Mumford’s Ben Lovett to create this album, which is unique in that all of the lyrics will be crowdsourced—that is, anyone can submit lyrics for consideration. You can do so here until Mar. 31.
Today, the organization announced that Kanye, The National, and Ellie Goulding would be some of the artists tasked with turning those lyrics into songs for the LP, which will be composed of 12 tracks and be released this coming fall.
Lovett himself released a statement on the project:
If you’ve ever wanted a co-writing credit with Yeezy, this is your big chance.
