Get Some Great Music for an even Greater Cause

Songs for the Cure is teaming up over 40 artists in the video game music community (including composers and remixers) to help fight cancer.

This is the third annual collaborative effort by composer Josh Whelchel (who scored the excellent The Spirit Engine games) and has already raised over $6,000 for cancer research. This year, the goal is to raise $10,000 by April 29th.

Due to strong support the cause has been getting, Songs for the Cure ’11 will feature three albums worth of never before heard compositions by some very strong names in the video game music scene. Notable artists include:

  • Souleye (VVVVVV)
  • Alec Holowka (Aquaria)
  • Danny Baranowsky (Super Meat Boy)
  • Jimmy Hinson (Mass Effect 2)
  • C418 (Minecraft)
  • Alexander “Siren” Brandon (Deus Ex)
  • Donations of $5 will net you a digital download for one of the three albums, while $10 will score you all three. Those wishing to have physical copies of the albums will need to donate at least $20, or $15 if you preorder. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society.

    If you would rather donate money to aid the effort in Japan right now, Songs for the Cure still wants to reward your efforts. If you donate at least $10 to a notable fund established to help the Japan recovery effort and email your receipt to JAPAN[AT]CANCERDRIVE.ORG, you will receive a digital copy of both Songs for the Cure ’09 and ’10. Be sure to act quick, because this offer ends by midnight tonight (PST)

    Songs for the Cure ’11 will be available on Amazon MP3, iTunes, Bandcamp, and CD Baby upon its release on March 29th. Donations details can be found on their official website.
