Feist and Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard have joined forces for charity.
The Red Hot album will benefit AIDS research and will also feature the likes of Sufjan Stevens, The Decemberists, Sharon Jones and Dirty Projectors. David Byrne, who will also feature on the record, said:
“I’d been told more than once that we should all work together, and it seems the suggestion was fated to be realised…The tune is as oddly structured as any of their pieces, but you sort of don’t notice because it is really catchy and it all flows as if nothing untoward is going on whatsoever.”
The as-yet-untitled album is set to be released in the autumn or in early 2009.
