Emmy-winning New York composer/producer Jonathan Elias has assembled a multitude of artists to partake in a charity album, Path To Zero: Prayer Cycle 2, including Sting and his wife Trudie Styler; Robert Downey Jr.; System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian; Sinead O’Connor and Korn’s Jonathan Davis. He even scored a rare Jim Morrison recording.
Available June 7 on Across The Universe Records, all proceeds from the album, which focuses on the social and moral implications of nuclear weaponry, will be donated to Global Zero, an international organization established in 2008 that is dedicated to the worldwide elimination of atomic weapons.
Elias, 55, who has produced such acts as Downey, Duran Duran, Yes and Grace Jones, discovered the charity through his ties to Amnesty International.
“I have children, and I see what kind of world we’re leaving behind for them,” said Elias in a press statement. “It seems obvious that if we allow the continuing proliferation of nuclear weapons, there soon won’t be much of a world to live in.”
