Author Dave Eggers and music executive Jordan Kurland's Good Music has put together an exclusive compilation album benefitting abortion nonprofits in the US in light of the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Good Music to Ensure Safe Abortion Access to All arrives on Bandcamp this Friday (October 7) for just 24 hours, starting at 12:01 a.m. PT. The album compiles "previously unreleased recordings including never-before-heard new songs, covers, remixes, live versions, and unreleased demos," according to a release.

It features new material from Wet Leg, PUP, Maya Hawke, Tegan and Sara, Mac DeMarco, David Byrne, Death Cab for Cutie, R.E.M., King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Animal Collective, Cat Power, Pearl Jam and many, many more.

"Independent clinics provide the majority of abortion care in the US, yet these dedicated providers often lack the visibility and resources they need to keep their doors open," Jay Thibodeau, Communications Director at Abortion Care Network, said in a statement. "Donating to keep clinics open in every state makes a huge difference to those who need care, and bold, public support for indie providers is deeply meaningful. It also matters that people who have, provide, and support abortion know that they are not alone: most people in the US support the right to abortion, and we are less alone when we can see and join unified, unapologetic calls to liberate abortion." 

The full 100 percent of proceeds from album sales will be donated to Brigid Alliance, Abortion Care Network and NOISE FOR NOW, and a T-shirt with the album artwork (designed by Kim Gordon) will also be for sale.
