2. Release of “Under The Moon”
We are also pleased to announce the release of an updated and remastered version of “Under the Moon,” a bluesy orchestral ballad featured on our fourth and most recent charity album, A Beautiful Heart. “Under the Moon” features the musical talents of Sprocket and Feather, and poses the question: What if the princess had sung a soliloquy during “Luna Eclipsed”?
The Seeds of Kindness 3 fundraising drive is an ongoing effort that has been in the works since August of this year. We have raised more than €25,000 for the Safe Project orphanage in Uganda and the Green Village for street children in Burundi. As a direct result, the scores of children in the care of the orphanage were able to move into their new building a few weeks ago. Everypony who donates to this drive receives a complimentary download of A Beautiful Heart as well as the other three charity albums. (Those who have already donated can also download the updated version of “Under the Moon.”)
A Beautiful Heart is our fourth album. It is the culmination of months of work from many talented musical artists throughout the fandom. Featuring 38 tracks, more than two hours of music, several ambitious collaborations, and music from both popular artists throughout the fandom and up-and-coming musicians alike, A Beautiful Heart is a testament to the generosity and spirit of altruism running strong in the brony music scene today. It’s our pleasure to share it with you now. Keep an eye out for contributions from artists such as EileMonty, MEMJ, Forest Rain, Feather, Makkon, Carbon Maestro, Seventh Element, MC Flowny, and many more.
Listen to it after the break!
