Earlier this year we were asked to contribute a previously unreleased original in order to raise money for a good cause. Naturally, we agreed to do so and the result can be heard on A Kool Kat Kristmas Vol. 2 (Kool Kat Musik). “You Always Come Back Home (for Christmas)” is a song that we played live a few times but never really finished – Now we had a good reason to do so!
You can listen to it and the rest of the songs on Soundcloud.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each copy will be donated to The Susan Giblin Foundation for Animal Wellness and Welfare. The Foundation’s mission is to raise and dispense funds to support animal caregiving organizations, to foster awareness and education of complementary therapies, and to support the continued education of those in the animal medical field.
The compilation album that was released on 27 April this year to raise funds for the victims of the tsunami in Japan is now available on Spotify. Our contribution to the album is “I Wanna Be a Stranger” – a rockin’ tune from the first album sessions that has previously only been released on a bonus disc accompanying our debut in the US.
You can buy Together We Are Not Alone through Thistime Records Bandcamp page.
Together We Are Not Alone
The Japan relief compilation album Together We Are Not Alone (Thistime Records) is out today. You can get it on Bandcamp and iTunes Japan. You get 27 songs for $12 USD, but you can pay more if you like. Donate generously, as all profit from the compilation goes to the Red Cross. We have contributed a song called “I Wanna Be a Stranger”, which has previously only been available on the bonus disc accompanying The Striped Album in the US. Featured artists are The Posies, Bleu, The Wellingtons etc. Johan Bergqvist (a.k.a. Joey Fake) also contributes a brand new solo track.
Our Japanese label Thistime Records is putting out an album on iTunes and Bandcamp on April 27 in order to raise money for the earthquake/tsunami relief efforts. We have contributed the song “I Wanna Be a Stranger”, which has previously only been available on the bonus disc accompanying “The Striped Album” in the US. I’ve also offered up a solo tune called “Cul-de-sac” that I’ve recorded for my next solo album. In our safe part of the world it feels like it’s hard to do something to help, so we welcomed this opportunity when we were approached with the charity disc idea. A specific bandcamp page will be made for it and as soon as it’s up and running we’ll let you know.
