Anyone who is liberal knows filmmaker Michael Moore is one of the coolest guys on the planet. So, when I opened up my email this morning to see a link from Michael pointing to his latest endeavor — his version of the Bob Dylan song “The Times They Are A-Changin”, I wasn’t surprised. (Listen to it below).
Michael Moore’s foray into the musical world is for the Occupy This Album — a charity album to be released on May 15th, with all proceeds going to the Occupy Wall Street movement. Other artists on the album include Ani DeFranco, Jackson Browne, Steve Earle, Yo La Tengo, Lloyd Cole and Willie Nelson among many others.
The Occupy This Album is a massive album with 99 tracks (especially for the 99 percent of us), and will be available as a digital release or as a 4-disc set with 78 tracks. The digital version will only be $9.99 — so basically you’ll pay 10 cents per track. You don’t get much cheaper music than that and, let’s face it, the money is going to one of the best causes around. So, please, buy it!
