Tribute: Sinead O’Connor

SINEAD O’CONNOR to take part in a crowd funded tribute album for Blind Willie Johnson.

The fundraising campaign began on Kickstarter.com on October 13 and the album will go ahead only if £80,000 is raised. Fans have pledged £30,000 so far.

Other artists who have signed up to record tracks for the album include Tom Waits, The Blind Boys of Alabama and Lucinda Williams.

More music:

God Don’t Never Change will be produced by Jeffrey Gaskill who previously had success with the independently funded Gotta Serve Somebody: The Gospel Songs of Bob Dylan. His mission is to spread the word about Blind Willie Johnson whose contribution to the world of music he feels, is “far too often overlooked.”

He said: “Our mission is to shine a light and acknowledge this important and influential artist currently representing mankind in outer space.”
