Michael Stipe, CHVRCHES, and Coldplay Contribute to Earth Day Benefit Compilation: Stream

Michael Stipe, CHVRCHES, and Coldplay are just a few of over 60 artists who’ve contributed to the 2023 iteration of EarthPercent’s annual Earth Day compilation album. Proceeds will benefit the Brian Eno-founded charity’s grant giving program, which directly benefits organizations fighting the ongoing climate crisis.

Stipe — a frequent eco-advocate — contributes the track “Give Me a Hand,” a moody art-pop number featuring guest vocals from folk singer and disability advocate Gaelynn Lea. Meanwhile, CHVRCHES reunite with their pal Robert Smith of The Cure for a rendition of their song “How Not to Drown,” recorded live at the Brixton Academy. Coldplay tap H.E.R. for another live track, this one being their ballad “Let Somebody Go” at the River Plate.

Also featured on the compilation are Eno, Dry Cleaning, dodie, Bring Me the Horizon, Julia Holter, Mystery Jets, and many more. Stream the album (or, better yet, buy it directly) via Bandcamp below.

Eno and Stipe also appeared on EarthPercent’s 2022 Earth Day compilation, along with the likes of Peter Gabriel, Big Thief, Jarvis Cocker, Death Cab for Cutie, and Hot Chip.
