Well, the lineup is a little random, but anything is better than nothing, right? Why is it that the protest singers of yore — Crosby, Nash — are still leading the fight in 2011? Where are the young troubadours when they are truly needed? And why, (seriously, why) do organizers assume Third Eye Blind will help propel the album’s lofty sales goals? See below for the full story.
NEW YORK (AP) — Occupy Wall Street will soon have a soundtrack.
Participants in the protest movement said Wednesday that they are putting out a benefit album with music from Third Eye Blind, David Crosby and Graham Nash, Jackson Browne, Lucinda Williams, DJ Logic, Ladytron and others.
Jason Samel, a musician who is putting together the disc, says the goal is to raise between $1 million and $2 million to help fuel the movement that is protesting income disparity.
It will be available this winter, at first in digital form only.
