Korn, Rage Against The Machine, Alanis Morissette, Pearl Jam, and the Wallflowers are among the artists contributing tracks to a benefit album titled "No Boundaries." The project aims to raise funds for the Kosovo refugees and is due out on June 15.Other musicians also offering up rare, live, or previously unreleased material for the record include Tori Amos, Ben Folds Five, Black Sabbath, Bush, Peter Gabriel, Indigo Girls, Jamiroquai, Sarah McLachlan, Oasis, and Neil Young. Proceeds from the album will be donated to three international charity groups: CARE, OXFAM, and Doctors Without Borders, all of which are working to provide the refugees with such basic needs as food, shelter, and clothing. The first single from "No Boundaries" will be Pearl Jam's version of "Last Kiss." The track is already being played on radio and will be issued on June 8 (see "Pearl Jam To Release Benefit Single For Kosovo Refugees").
The "Last Kiss" single will also feature another Pearl Jam rarity slated for "No Boundaries:" the band's live version of Arthur Alexander's "Soldier of Love." (Both "Last Kiss" and "Soldier of Love" were released last year as Pearl Jam's Christmas fan club single.)Epic Records will donate $1 million to be split amongst the three charities before the benefit album even hits store shelves, based upon sales projections. Subsequent donations will be made to the organizations based upon additional sales in the U.S. and the world. The track listing for "No Boundaries" is still being finalized, but we'll keep you posted.
