Slash, Steven Tyler, and other rock all-stars are teaming up for a new compilation album from Rock Against Trafficking.
The nonprofit organization committed to the awareness and prevention of child slavery worldwide has announced its first music project, Set Them Free. The record will include classic songs written by Sting and the Police retooled by not only Tyler and Slash, but also Journey guitarist Neal Schon, Deep Purple's Glenn Hughes, Julian Lennon, Joe Bonamassa, and Heart.
More artists are expected to be added to the lineup as the recording sessions for Set Them Free continue. A specific release date for the album has yet to be announced.
Rock Against Trafficking's Set Them Free comes as the Boko Haram terrorist group in Nigeria is threatening to sell more than 200 kidnapped schoolgirls into slavery. More information about Rock Against Trafficking and its mission is available at RockAgainstTrafficking.org.
