Barenaked Ladies man has a new Record Store Day project that benefits music education

MusiCounts, the music education arm of CARAS, the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, does good work. They raise money to make sure as many kids in this country get a chance to learn about music and to play an instrument.

Kevin Hearn of The Barenaked Ladies wants to help. On April 13–Record Store Day–he’ll release entitled Kevin Hearns and Friends Present: The Superhero Suite, a 12-inch EP on 180-gram clear vinyl. He describes it as “a wild medley of vintage superhero-related songs, including iconic music from TV and film running the gamut from the classic Batman theme to the 1978 soundtrack of Superman.”

Guests include Carole Pope, Alan Doyle, Ron Sexsmith, the Violent Femmes, and Colin Hay from Men at Work.

The record will sell for $15 with all proceeds going to MusiCounts. Here’s a trailer for the whole thing. (Note the voiceover by Kiefer Sutherland.
