Kanye West, The National, Mumford and Sons and Ellie Goulding are among the artists that have contributed to a new album titled Metamorphoses in support of the advocacy organization Global Citizen. Global Citzen's goal is to end extreme global poverty by 2030. The new and original collection of music is inspired by the stories that were crowd-sourced from fans and activists. Lyrical submissions are open until March 31. The album is expected to be released this fall.

Mumford and Sons member Ben Lovett, who is a big driving force for the project in addition to Global Citzen CEO Hugh Evans, recently expressed his interest in the project via press release:

"Metamorphoses has the potential to break down our preconceptions of the voices of creativity, what different people around the world are thinking and who has the right to be heard. In my own life, I've experienced people trying to define me and put me in boxes and categories. Through collaboration we can show people how those lines can be blurred and are ultimately redundant. The artists involved in this project are some of the most genuine artists the world has to offer. Artists like Kanye West, and The National are doing something globally important that is touching people down to their DNA. And these masterfully creative people are going to be interpreting incredible submissions from people across the globe. It has been a joy reading all of the submissions we received over the past six months. I'm truly excited to see what we will create together."
