Both Bruce Springsteen and Peter Gabriel have contributed tracks to a new charity album called ¡Released!, featuring live recordings from Amnesty International's Human Rights Concerts. The group held the events between 1986 and 1998.
The box includes six DVDs with live performance footage and another two CDs with live recordings. Other top acts featured on the set include U2, the Police, Bryan Adams, Miles Davis, Lou Reed and Joni Mitchell.
Amnesty broke news of the release in an official statement:
"In celebration of this anniversary - and to raise further funds for - and consciousness of - Amnesty, the films of all the Human Rights Concerts have been digitally restored and are to be released in 2013 in DVD, audio and digital formats. Three of the four films have never been available in any format since their one-time-only airing on TV - making the upcoming release all the more exciting."
¡Released! is due November 5.
