Forever is Now is releasing 1.24.12. It's produced entirely by UK-based super-producer Abstrakt, composed of samples from some of our favorite Sigur Ros songs. You'll notice the album is released as "name your price," so you can set any price from $0-$100,000. However, 100% of what you choose to pay will be donated to Faraja and Ebenezer orphanages in Kenya. And as an added incentive, those of you who Pre-Order with any amount of money will have the album two weeks in advance, on 1.10.12.
With the Give Back Friday sale wrapped up, I thought I'd share just where exactly your support over the last week will go. This video from Mercy Corps sums it up nicely:
By providing women with fuel-efficient cookstoves, Mercy Corps helps reduce the pressure on forests that serve as habitat for endangered gorillas. More importantly, it reduces the time women spend gathering wood outside protected camps, when they are at a severe risk of assault.
As always, 50% of the net proceeds from merch/album sales will continue to be donated to Mercy Corps relief efforts in the Congo.
