Colours Are Brighter, the upcomming release from Rough Trade records is not your usual indy label compilation. The target audience for this record is slightly shorter in stature. Most of the tracks on the album were written by the artists especially for children, others are covers of children’s songs. When asked about why do the project Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand said ” I had a safe and happy childhood, but not everyone is that lucky.” Funds from the album will go to Save the Children’s Global Challenge campaign to provide quality education for 8 million children in areas around the world affected by war and conflict. Participating artists include Belle and Sebastian, Snow Patrol, Frans Ferdinand, and Four Tet.
