A number of high profile artists including Anna Calvi, Moby, Algiers, Daniel Avery, Sad13, Cold Specks, Rhys Chatham, Rituals of Mine and M83 alumni J. Laser will be contributing new original music for an upcoming fundraiser album titled The Longest Day.

Influential 1980s alternative rock outfit New Order will also be releasing an extended mix of “Nothing But A Fool” on vinyl for the first time as a part of this compilation record. This song was originally featured on the group’s 2015 studio album Music Complete.
