Global Citizen's latest project is asking for lyric submissions from around the world. These will then be built into songs—by artists like Kanye West, the National, and Ellie Goulding—and compiled on an album titled Metamorphoses.
According to a press release from Mumford & Sons' Ben Lovett, who is overseeing Metamorphoses, the album "has the potential to break down our preconceptions of the voices of creativity, what different people around the world are thinking and who has the right to be heard... The artists involved in this project are some of the most genuine artists the world has to offer. Artists like Kanye West and The National are doing something globally important that is touching people down to their DNA. And these masterfully creative people are going to be interpreting incredible submissions from people across the globe. It has been a joy reading all of the submissions we received over the past six months. I’m truly excited to see what we will create together."
