The David Lynch Foundation announced plans today to release the physical version of DOWNLOAD FOR GOOD: MUSIC THAT CHANGES THE WORLD as a SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION BOX SET to celebrate Record Store Day, Saturday April 21, 2012. You can check out the official press release here.
MUSIC THAT CHANGES THE WORLD is a deluxe, four-volume vinyl collection featuring 34 exclusive tracks by world-renowned artists such as Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Donovan, Iggy Pop, Peter Gabriel, Moby, Maroon 5, Ozomatli and others.
Originally released in mid-July 2011 via iTunes as DOWNLOAD FOR GOOD, the MUSIC THAT CHANGES THE WORLD, SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION BOX SET is a wonderfully eclectic, star-studded vinyl music compilation benefitting the David Lynch Foundation—a non-profit educational organization founded by iconic filmmaker David Lynch. The compilation has been re-mastered for vinyl, and includes a previously unreleased bonus track from Sean Lennon’s “Ghost of the Saber Tooth Tiger,” as well as an exclusive new release from Julio Iglesias Jr. via digital download.
“It is my great pleasure to announce the vinyl release of MUSIC THAT CHANGES THE WORLD on Record Store Day,” said Donovan. “As head of the Musical Wing of The David Lynch Foundation, I wish to thank all the amazing artists who have contributed. From the beginning, when The Beatles and I were writing songs to promote Maharishi’s meditation, it was always my dream to bring all the musical fraternity onto one great label to Promote True Peace. This day has arrived and now the world can know as we knew then, that Change Begins Within.”
The SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION BOX SET features a gorgeous 42-page color book with an introduction by David Lynch. The book is illustrated by Romio Shrestha, who has been called “a modern master of the Indo-Nepali-Tibetan Buddhist traditions of enlightenment art,” and New Jersey artist Davel Hamue. All songs were re-mastered for this project by Gavin Lurssen and Reuben Cohen from Lurssen Mastering. Gavin is a three-time Grammy award winner and one-time Latin Grammy award winner, whose mastering credits include the music of Elvis Costello, Eric Clapton, Alison Krauss and Robert Plant to name just a few. His Grammy’s include mastering for the soundtrack of the movie, Oh Brother Where Art Thou, and for his work on the box set accompaniment to the acclaimed PBS series, Martin Scorsese Presents the Blues. His most recent award, the Latin Grammy, was for the Best Engineered Album, Distinto by Diego Torres. Reuben Cohen is a Latin Grammy award winner whose mastering credits include the music of Bruno Mars, the Far East Movement, Snoop Dogg, Sean Kingston, Common, and Ingrid Michaelson.
The MUSIC THAT CHANGES THE WORLD, SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION will also include a digital version of “Meditation, Creativity, Peace”, a compelling new documentary film featuring exclusive, candid footage from David Lynch’s 16-country tour around the world when he spoke to government leaders, film students, and the press during 2007 and 2008.
