NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Mumford & Sons and Kanye West will participate in a collaborative album inspired by fans and activists from the advocacy organization, Global Citizen.
Global Citizen and Communion Music announced Tuesday that the album “Metamorphoses” will include 12 original songs made from fans and activists who submit words and stories to their online submission form.
Musicians will create new songs from the submissions.
“Metamorphoses” will also include alternative rock band The National and pop singer Ellie Goulding. Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons will curate the project.
More participating artists will be announced at a later date. The album will be released in the fall.
Global Citizen launched in 2012 and produces the free Global Citizen Festival in New York City.
Last year’s festival included guests like first lady Michelle Obama and Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai. Coldplay, Beyonce and Ed Sheeran were among some of the celebrity performers.
