More Perfect 27 amendments album

WNYC Studios and the More Perfect podcast has announced a new project called 27: The Most Perfect Album, in which 27 different artists contribute songs about the 27 amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Billboard reports that the album will feature contributions from Torres, Cherry Glazerr, Palehound, Octopus Project, They Might Be Giants and Dolly Parton. And the first track to be released from the album is Kevin Morby and Caroline Shaw’s “24th Amendment,” which is about the repeal of poll taxes. Listen to it here.

“The mission of this album is to take these sometimes forgotten words and animate them through the power of music,” says Jad Abumrad, host of the More Perfect podcast (an offshoot of Radiolab). “These 27 amendments not only outline our basic rights as Americans, but they also show a country changing, evolving, re-imagining itself. Striving (and not always succeeding) to be better.”
