It's here. ODW's first album, Songs for a Cause, Vol. 1, officially releases today!

In support and partnership with ODW and our vision to fight extreme global poverty, 21 amazing artists have donated their music to bring together a special compilation of 21 unique songs including four never-before-released tracks.

Contributing artists include OK Go, David Bazan, Rocky Votolato, Clare and the Reasons, They Might be Giants, Kimya Dawson (featured on the Juno soundtrack), and more.

There's only two things you need to know:
