New Arrivals Compilation Project
MPress Records announces the final line-up of the 5th installment in its charity compilation series, New Arrivals Vol. 5: Artists For Hurricane Sandy Relief (Due out Oct. 29th digitally, and January 14th physically). Conceived by MPress founder Rachael Sage and culled from over 1,000 submissions, "NAV5" features a wealth of international indie talent including: rising Brooklyn-based band Lucius; acclaimed NYC singer-songwriters Lucy Wainwright Roche and Ari Hest; UK folk-pop artists Polly Paulusma and Stephen Langstaff; and a bonus track by Grammy® Winner Paula Cole. 100% of all funds collected from the sale of this compilation benefit three NYC-based charities that are still continuing to serve communities affected by Hurricane Sandy: The Red Hook Initiative (Brooklyn), Project Hospitality Staten Island Hurricane Relief Fund (Staten Island) and Graybeards (The Rockaways).
As a NYC-based company, MPress Records is determined to help raise funds and spread the word about the outstanding work these charities are doing for Sandy Relief. The compilation will be made available early digitally on October 29th. Label founder and contributing artist Rachael Sage says, “As the anniversary of this tragic storm approaches, we are reminded that there are still many who are rebuilding….We and the amazingly talented artists who’ve donated their music are happy to share this album as an additional way for people to contribute to New York area families in need.”
The New Arrivals charity compilation series continues to showcase both established and indie artists, while raising funds and awareness for worthy causes. Launched in 2006, each CD continues to raise funds for its respective charity: Volume 1 benefits Gulf Coast Hurricane Relief, Volume 2 benefits World Hunger Year, Volume 3 benefits NEDA (National Eating Disorder Association), and Volume 4 benefits The National Network For Youth.
