'Kenya' track and video online today

Chris Taylor from Grizzly Bear, Solange Knowles and Twin Shadow have joined forces for a track intended to raise funds for the RAIN, (Replenish Africa Initiative), which aims to improve water provision and sanitation across the continent. You can donate to download the track here, and watch the video below.

A disembodied voice from the project speaks through the ether thus: "We wanted to start a new conversation about water in Africa amongst our peers, one which we are all able to be a part of not only through contribution, but through learning about the solutions and leading by example to encourage others to commit", while Solange Knowles said "Water is a necessity, it's not a privilege. The ‘Music for RAIN’ project gives everyone a chance to contribute and play a part in improving the situation."
