Sonic Youth to Release "Celebrity" Compilation
For 2007 project, Sonic Youth will release a compilation album that needs a little help from their celebrity friends. The alternative rock band will ask artists ranging from Wilco's frontman Jeff Tweedy to Michelle Williams to pick their favorite songs from Youth's discography.
Guitarist Thurston Moore explained the concept. "We sort of devised this idea of a Sonic Youth record where we asked all these different people to choose their favorite song, people like artists and actors and other musicians and what have you. So all these people, from Jeff Tweedy to Beck to Marc Jacobs to Portia de Rossi to Michelle Williams, they all chose their favorite songs and wrote a little thing about it."
The band, that decides to distribute this album through Starbucks' Hear Music label, will also have their selection of one exclusive song. This, along with the selected numbers from celebrities will then make it to the album.
