Here's some more info on it.
"To celebrate their 20th anniversary, the David Suzuki Foundation is launching "Playlist for the Planet", which brings together some of Canada’s finest songwriters and performers, including Bruce Cockburn, Broken Social Scene, k-os, Gordon Lightfoot, Randy Bachman (with Sarah McLachlan and Nikki Yanofsky), and many more.
In a post on the Foundation’s website, Suzuki says "It’s been my experience that musicians are often the first to donate their time and music to causes such as civil rights, poverty, and the environment. The impact certain songs have to rally emotions and actions is nothing short of extraordinary."
"I invited some of my favourite artists and friends to write a song for a compilation album. It’s called Playlist for the Planet... But since a clean, healthy, sustainable planet is something we all need, it only makes sense that we opened this up for everyone. This is a nationwide call for Canadian songwriters of all levels to bring their talents forward. "
