Kanye West and Ellie Goulding are among artists working on a new album called 'Metamorphoses', which is being created to help the Global Citizen charity
Kanye West and Ellie Goulding have teamed up with Mumford & Sons to make an LP called 'Metamorphoses'.
The project is being helmed by Mumford keyboardist Ben Lovett and the Global Citizen organisation's co-founder Hugh Evans, who will produce the overall release that will also feature The National.
The 'All Day' rapper and 'Army' hitmaker have the challenge of sourcing lyrics for the album from their fans and then creating songs from the submissions.
Explaining the compilation in a statement, Ben said: "'Metamorphoses' has the potential to break down our preconceptions of the voices of creativity, what different people around the world are thinking and who has the right to be heard.
"Artists like Kanye West and The National are doing something globally important that is touching people down to their DNA. And these masterfully creative people are going to be interpreting incredible submissions from people across the globe."
The album is to have 12 songs in total and more artists are yet to be confirmed to be a part of the campaign.
The aim of the record is to help put an end to poverty around the world.
Fans can submit their lyrics to www.globalcitizen.org.
It's expected to be released this autumn.
