The New Arrivals charity compilation series was launched in 2006 by MPress Records founder Rachael Sage (an acclaimed art-pop singer-songwriter who has also contributed a track to NAV4). Each CD has benefitted a different charity: Volume 1 benefitted Gulf Coast Hurricane Relief, Volume 2 benefitted World Hunger Year, and Volume 3 benefitted NEDA (National Eating Disorder Association). With regards to the upcoming Volume 4, Sage comments: "It's definitely our best lineup yet, it's a great cause, and we want to do it justice."
