Looks like we'll be getting something new from the Foo Fighters sooner than we thought!
While it's still some time before a new album from Dave and the guys, it HAS been announced that they will have something new soon. YES! The guys are joining up with a bunch of other artists/bands that will release a charity vinyl for Planned Parenthood.
The project is called 7-inches for Planned Parenthood and will also include work from Björk, Bon Iver, Feist, Sleater-Kinney, St. Vincent, the National’s Matt Berninger and Bryce Dessner, Janeane Garofalo, Margaret Cho, Zach Galifianakis, and more!
So what will this include? In the coming weeks material will be released from these artists in the form of music, comedy, and spoken word which will then be put together into a vinyl box set. 100% of the proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood.
Here's a press release on the project followed by a pretty funny trailer:
"Lawmakers with extreme views are working hard to shut down Planned Parenthood. If they succeed, millions of Americans will lose access to basic health services, including STD testing and treatment, birth control, and life-saving cancer screenings.
7-inches for Planned Parenthood is a response to this threat. This curated series of 7-inch vinyl records is being made by a group of people who believe that access to health care is a public good that should be fiercely protected. Do we know there’s a joke in the name? We do. We hope the title evokes the rich history of 7-inch vinyl records as a medium for protest music and resistance.
Planned Parenthood will receive 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this 7-inch box set and streaming listens. We see this initiative as the start of something bigger, and hope it will inspire both contributors and listeners to continue to seek out ways to stand with Planned Parenthood and other institutions that are so vital to us all."
