Educational non-profit 826LA has never been shy about calling in the star power for its benefits. (After all, founder; author Dave Eggers has quite the Rolodex.) This time, they’re recruiting Los Angeles-based musicians for an unusual benefit project called Chickens in Love.

Notable musicians, including She & Him, Cold War Kids, Fiona Apple, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, among others, are set to perform and record songs penned by children. The young scribes were taught their crafts during a workshop with another notable band, The Submarines.

The album (release date TBA) can be preordered here.

The project will cumulate in a concert March 6 at Los Angeles’ Echoplex featuring: The Submarines, Summer Darling, The Happy Hollows, and The Growlers. Tickets are available here.
