So you heard about the trouble hurricane Ingrid and the tropical storm Manuel caused in Mexico, right? According to the Mexican government, the country hasn’t seen such weather devastation since 1953, when two coasts where also hit simultaneously by natural disasters. Basically thousands of people in Veracruz and Guerrero where left homeless — lives where also lost — and their cities and towns remain wrecked. Because of all this, Lynn Fainchtein, the Mexican producer, asked many singers, producers, composers, directors — and even actors — to collaborate on Acuérdate, a three disc compilation featuring 46 unreleased songs. All the money them comps make will be donated to the Mexican Red Cross.
The first song on each disc is a cover of “Maria Bonita,” a popular song by Mexican singer-songwriter Agustin Lara, and the rest are either original songs or other covers. The list of contributors ranges from very well-known — Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel, Amores Perros), Diego Luna, Los Amigos Invisibles, Julieta Venegas, Miranda, Toy Selectah — to newer indie darlings — Dapuntobeat, Amandititita, Carla Morrisson, Quiero Club, Chico Sonido — to the newest of them all, I think: yours truly.
P3CULIAR provided a cover of “Yo te amo, te amo” by Yuri, which is actually a cover of this old Italian song. The track, along with all the others, will be available on iTunes & Google Play next Tuesday, October 22nd, but for the first two weeks you’ll have to buy the whole record, which will run you around $10 bucks. Or you can get all 3 for less than $30, more or less. After early November you’ll be able to purchase the songs individually and even stream them off Spotify, Deezer, Rdio and Gooveshark.
