David Lynch to Release Charity Box Set for Record Store Day


With Record Store Day now only a few months away, the limited-edition album release announcements have already started trickling in. Today brings word of an especially high-profile project from the ubiquitous David Lynch: He’s putting out a special vinyl box set version of Download for Good, the iTunes collection that came out last year and featured 34 exclusive tracks by artists ranging from Maroon 5 to Iggy Pop to Au Revoir Simone. Renamed Music That Changes the World, the physical release will be limited to 2,500 copies and include both a 42-page color booklet of “enlightenment art” with an introduction by Lynch and a previously unreleased Sean Lennon bonus track. All proceeds will benefit the David Lynch Foundation, which funds implementation of and research on “scientifically proven stress-reducing modalities including Transcendental Meditation, for at-risk populations.” Hey, it’s not a new movie or anything, but it’s nice to hear that Lynch is keeping himself busy doing good.
