Full Track List Announced For Lennon Charity Tribute


With Green Day's cover of "Working Class Hero" arriving at radio today, the entire track listing has been announced for the John Lennon charity tribute record Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign To Save Darfur. The all-star disc includes contributions from U2, R.E.M., Christina Aguilera, Aerosmith and Black Eyed Peas, In addition to the two-CD set, additional tracks from Ozzy Osbourne, Duran Duran, Willie Nelson, the Deftones and others will be released digitally.

Proceeds from CD and digital sales will support Amnesty International and its campaign to focus attention and mobilize activism around the urgent catastrophe in Darfur, and other human rights crises. "It's wonderful that, through this campaign, music that is so familiar to many people of my era will now be embraced by a whole new generation," said Yoko Ono. "John's music set out to inspire change, and in standing up for human rights, we really can make the world a better place."

Larry Cox, Executive Director of Amnesty International U.S.A., adds, "We know music's power to unite and inspire people. With hundreds of thousands dead, millions driven from their burned out villages and rape being used as a tactic in the Darfur conflict, the world needs a mass mobilization demanding action and justice. The Instant Karma campaign combines John Lennon's passionate desire for us to imagine a more peaceful world with Amnesty International's expertise in achieving justice. Instant Karma allows ordinary people to lend their hand in saving lives -- a notion we think would make John proud."
