Profits from a new compilation from Mark Ryden go to a local LA charity.

A host of artist have been rounded up for a new compilation titled ‘The Gay Nineties Old Tyme Music: Daisy Bill’, which sees big names taking on the same song: ‘Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built for Two)”.

The piece - initially composed by Harry Dacre in 1892 - has been covered by the likes of Nick Cave, Katy Perry, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh, Tyler The Creator, Metallica’s Kirk Hammett and Danny Elfman.
