Steve Earle and his wife, Allison Moorer, are just two of the stars who have donated songs to a new benefit album raising funds for those affected by Hurricane Katrina.

Joining the couple – who welcomed a new baby into their lives earlier this year – on Dear New Orleans are a number of bands and artists, including OK Go, Tom Morello and My Morning Jacket. The album is being produced by Air Traffic Control, an organization that has been co-hosting activism retreats in New Orleans for the last four years.

Proceeds from the Dear New Orleans album will go to a number of organizations working to support and sustain the region’s unique musical and cultural traditions, and to protect and restore vital environmental and community resources for future generations. These include Sweet Home New Orleans and the Gulf Restoration Network.

The album is being released on August 24. More information can be found here.
