Manimal Vinyl's much-expected Repetition/ A Tribute to David Bowie doesn't come out until May 14th, but the Los Angeles label has just announced that they are now taking pre-orders through their website.
Repetition features a Who's Who of Manimal-affiliated acts like Rainbow Arabia, Polyamorous Affair, We Are the World, Warpaint, Swahili Blonde and Tearist, along with Vivan Girls, Devendra Banhart's side-project Magapuss, Chairlift, A Place to Bury Strangers and, most surprisingly, First Lady of France Carla Bruni and a obscure retro New Romantic outfit called Duran Duran.
Manimal, originally set up in 2006 by Paul Beahan, is known for periodic tribute albums that benefit charities. The Bowie project follows previous tributes to Madonna (2007) and The Cure (2008), and all the proceeds will go War Child.
War Child International is "a network of independent organisations, working across the world to help children affected by war." Its stated goal is "to advance the cause of peace through investing hope in the lives of children caught up in the horrors of war. War Child works in many different conflict areas around the world, helping hundreds of thousands of children every year."
