Film director David Lynch (Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart, Mulholland Drive) released a 17-track charity compilation on March 8 to support his foundation, which encourages healing through meditation.

The album features exclusive tracks by Tom Waits, Iggy Pop, Peter Gabriel, Moby, Ben Folds and others.

“Music itself is such a beautiful, beautiful thing,” said Lynch, "The world of music-like all the other worlds-is infinitely deep…some of the great music just thrills us to the soul…any sales of DLF music goes to support these now growing number of programs from the David Lynch Foundation."

In exchange for a pledge of $18, DLF Music will provide all tracks in a digital format over the course of the next six weeks, with all proceeds going to their global effort to teach “stress-reducing, health-promoting meditation to one million at-risk youth and 10,000 veterans with PTSD.”

Waits’ exclusive contribution to the “Download for Good” campaign is a stripped-down live recording of “The Briar & the Rose,” a song the Rock Hall inductee wrote in 1993 for the album and William S. Burroughs-co-written play The Black Rider.
