I’m stoked for the release of the Heroes album, from War Child International. Take the greatest living legends in music, have them choose a band they deem worthy enough to cover a song from their own back catalog, and what do you get? Nothing short of amazing. From Beck covering Bob Dylan, to The Like (a personal favorite) covering Elvis Costello, this will not only be a great album musically, but the proceeds will go to help children victimized by war. So be sure mark down February 16th in your calendar.
