Michael Stipe, CHVRCHES, and Coldplay contribute to Earth Day Benefit Compilation

"All proceeds will support organisations working on the frontlines of climate action"

A host of musicians have contributed tracks to a new 60-track compilation in honour of Earth Day.

The ‘EarthPercent x Earth Day ’23 Compilation Album’ features tracks from CHVRCHES, Coldplay, Michael Stipe, Bring Me The Horizon and Do Nothing.

The record was released to celebrate yesterday’s Earth Day (April 22) and is available to download via Bandcamp for £25, though tracks are also available to purchase individually. A vinyl version is also available to pre-order.


All proceeds from the sale will go to EarthPercent Grant, which gives funding support to organisations working on the frontlines of climate action.

Founded in 2021 by Brian Eno, EarthPercent aims “to offer simple and innovative ways for businesses and artists to donate to the most impactful organisations addressing the climate emergency”.

Included in the compilation are an acoustic version of Bring Me The Horizon’s ‘Strangers’, a live version of CHVRCHES’ collab with The Cure’s Robert Smith recorded at Brixton Academy and a live take of Coldplay and H.E.R. performing ‘Let Somebody Go’.

The 2022 EarthPercent compilation record featured tracks by such artists as Coldplay, Stipe, Eno, Anna Calvi and Jarvis Cocker‘s JARV IS…

“EarthPercent’s Earth Day campaign on Bandcamp brings artists together to offer exclusive tracks to their fans, to be sold on behalf of climate justice and environmental protection organisations. This is what unleashing the power of music in service of the planet looks like,” Eno said in a statement.

“We want Earth Day to become a day of real action for the planet, offering a way for any artist, from any genre, at any stage of their career, to make a meaningful contribution to addressing the climate emergency.”
