With such a massive, sweeping influence on the genesis of rock and roll, it’s no surprise that Buddy Holly would be honored with the all-star tribute compilation Rave On Buddy Holly. And while acts from Paul McCartney to Fiona Apple already got their chance to pay homage, this September 6th sees a new set of musical superstars praise the bespectacled rock god with the release of Listen To Me: Buddy Holly.
This second compilation will feature offerings from Zooey Deschanel, Brian Wilson, Patrick Stump, Jackson Browne, The Fray, Chris Isaak, Ringo Starr, Cobra Starship, Natalie Merchant, Linda Ronstadt, Ringo Starr, Stevie Nicks, and more. The album’s proceeds will go to benefit The Grammy Foundation’s “Grammy Camps” and Artists’ House Music, both of whom develop programs and support for the future Buddy Holly’s of the world.
The album is available for pre-order here. In addition, watch a behind-the-scenes video of several artists, including Starr and Browne, and producer Peter Asher talking all things Holly at RollingStone.com.
