In the wake up of Donald Trump’s frightening and grossly incompetent White House takeover, musicians have made it a point to support organizations like Planned Parenthood every way that they can.
The National donated all their merchandise profits to PP, as well as played a benefit show in the nation’s capital alongside Sleater-Kinney; Beastie Boys’ Ad-Rock designed special sneakers to raise money for PP; and Pinegrove, Joan of Arc, and label Run for Cover all offered up their Bandcamp profits in the name of reproductive rights and healthcare.
Now, a Planned Parenthood-benefiting collaboration between St. Vincent, Zach Galifianakis, and John Legend is in the works. Creative Independent Editor-in-Chief Brandon Stosuy recently tweeted a picture showing the three gathered around a piano in a cozy-type bar or lounge:
Additionally, as Stereogum points out, CHVRCHES and Kristen Stewart have teamed up for PP. Stewart is reportedly helming a “musically oriented piece” for the Scottish synthpop outfit. “I had been asking them to let me do something for them for a while,” Stewart told The Los Angeles Times. “They’re so good. I ended up with a pretty simple but definitive narrative arc that highlights the cause in a sweet but quiet and confronting way.”
