Sting and Police Covers Album to Raise Awareness about Child Slavery
A new album featuring covers of Sting and Police tunes is being released to benefit a new campaign against child labor and sex trafficking. Famous names donating tracks to the album include Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, Slash, Neal Schon and Arnel Pineda of Journey, Heart, Julian Lennon and Glenn Hughes.
“This is for a very good cause,” Schon said. “All kinds of artists are on this record.”
The album, named “Set Them Free,” will benefit Rock Against Trafficking, a nonprofit organization with the mission of raising awareness about child slavery, according to Billboard . R.A.T. founder Gary Miller is producing the album. He’s a notable choice, as Miller has worked with Hall and Oates, David Bowie, Simply Red, Billy Preston and more.
A release date and track listing for “Set Them Free” is expected to be revealed soon.
