Janet Reno compilation is due out late summer
The idea was originally proposed by US Attorney General Janet Reno, and has taken shape in the form of ‘Song Of America’, which is due out in the US on September 18.
The songs on the compilation tell stories of Native Americans, the arrival of European immigrants, the American Revolution, the Civil War and two world wars, as well as major events leading up to the present-day.
Also contributing to the compilation are John Mellencamp, Blind Boys of Alabama and Andrew Bird.
